At AAMCO, our biggest priority is the safety of you and your family.

The statistics regarding children’s safety in vehicles are grim. Motor vehicle accidents represent the leading cause of death among children ages 3-14 in the United States. Over half of these accidents could have been prevented if the children had been in a properly fitted car seat. Placing children in age and size-appropriate car seats drastically reduces serious and fatal injuries.
More than 90% of the car seats inspected by Colorado CPS technicians are improperly installed. When a child is in an improperly installed car seat, it can result in injury or death. Taking the time to have your child’s car seat checked and to make sure you are installing it correctly can mean the difference between life and death.
In addition to this, having a correctly sized and installed car seat for child passengers is the law. Depending on the age and size of a child, mandatory restraints and requirements are outlined in the Colorado’s Child Passenger Safety Law. Whether a child is a newborn or a teenager, there are specific rules in place to ensure their safety and that of their parents.
This is why AAMCO is offering car seat fit stations all over the state. We want you to know when your child is in the car, every measure has been taken to ensure their safety. At our “fit stations,” parents will find free assistance, including car seat checks, to ensure proper installation. For parents facing financial hardship, some stations provide car seats at a reduced price.
