The Effingham County Sheriff's Office, Effingham County Health Department, Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and Georgia State Patrol offered free child car seat inspections Saturday at Walmart in Rincon for “National Seat Check Saturday."

Research shows that car seats reduce the risk of fatal injury for infants by 71 percent and by 54 percent for toddlers in cars, and by 58 percent and 59 percent for infants and toddlers in SUVs, pickups and vans. In 2011, 36 percent of children under 13 in cars, SUVs, vans, and pickups who died in crashes weren’t restrained at the time of the crashes, according to the health department.
