Are you confident that your child is travelling safely?

A recent safety blitz by Kidsafe Qld and Transurban revealed up to 90% of car seats are fitted incorrectly.

A correctly fitted car seat can reduce the risk of an injury in a road accident by up to 70% – so it is important to make sure your child’s car seat is installed correctly to keep your precious cargo safe on the road.

Kidsafe Qld has partnered with Transurban to offer FREE checking services

Already, more than 7000 children are safer on South East Queensland roads as the direct result of our partnership with Transurban.

Until 30 June 2025 we have FREE car seat checks on Fridays, at different shopping centres each month.

Can anyone get a FREE child car seat fitting or check?

Yes! Thanks to Transurban’s support, Kidsafe Qld’s FREE child car seat fittings and checks are available to anyone that books. Bookings are essential so follow the links above. Free appointments are popular and if appointments aren’t online, call 3854 1829 to be waitlisted in the event we have last minute cancellations.

Alternatively, Kidsafe Qld does offer fee-for-service appointments so that you can have your child’s car seat installed, moved or checked by one of our professional Type 1 fitters at our Stafford or Mater Hospital Sites.

What happens if my child car seat doesn’t pass the check?

If your child car seat is found to be older than 10 years, unsuitable for your child, or doesn’t meet Australian Standards, we will always carry seats with us that are for sale or hire.

If your baby does not meet or exceed the height marker for forward facing, we will be unable to turn your restraint fowards. Check your height markers before you attend to avoid disappointment.
