Grand Forks (WDAY TV) - Child car seats have saved many lives over the years but are only effective if used properly.
Experts say 4 out of every 5 seats are used improperly.
And that was the motivation behind a free car seat inspection Sunday in Grand Forks.
Jasmine Wangen- Child Seat Safety Technician: "The response that we get from people is usually overwhelming, they are excited to learn something new or learn a safer way to transport their children.”
A tip from the event you can take away: If you're using a car seat that has been previously used - check for broken or missing pieces.
