Valdosta - Is your child's car seat installed correctly? If not, you could be putting your kids in big danger.

The Valdosta Fire Department and UGA's Traffic Injury Prevention unit gave free child safety seat inspections at Super Wal-Mart Friday. They also showed parents how to install safety seats correctly.

The seat should face the rear until a child reaches a certain height and weight. It also shouldn't move more than an inch when buckled in.

"The most common error parents make is not reading the directions," said Melba King, Child Safety Trainer. "If they go ahead and do that, they can understand just how the child is supposed to be in the seat."

Safety trainers say half of the children traveling today aren't buckled up correctly.
