ALBANY, GA (WALB) – They're the most precious cargo you can carry in your car, and law enforcers want to make sure children are secure when you're on the road.  This is child safety seat week.

All across the state, certified child safety seat technicians are performing safety seat inspections and advice for parents.  They want to make sure all children are in age and weight appropriate car seats that are installed correctly.

Phyllis Banks with the Albany Police department said, "A child's chances just increase when they're in a car seat.  Not only in the car seat, but making sure that the car seat is properly installed, that's the key."

If you want to have your child's car seat checked out, you can call the Albany Police Department for an appointment.  That number is 431-2100.
