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.
