The public is invited to come and join TxDOT, Texas A&M AgriLife, and Bowie County for a free car seat inspection next week. Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that 46 percent of all child car seats are misused. If the seat isn't installed and being used correctly, that could turn a fender bender into a major tragedy in no time.
