CAR seat clinics will be held in Moray to advise parents on how to transport their children safely.
At events last year it was found that 70% of child seats were fitted incorrectly.
Road safety advisors from Police Scotland will be holding clinics beginning at the Tesco store in Buckie tomorrow from 10am to 3pm.
Those attending can have their car child seats and receive information leaflets.
Lucy Cramb, road safety advisor, said: "This is a valuable opportunity for local people to have their seats checked for free as this check could save a child’s life.
"Incompatible seats, loose belts or harnesses and incorrect routings are common faults which can increase the risk of severe injury or be fatal. "Children under 12 years of age or 135cm tall must use the appropriate seat for their weight and height.
"We are not there to judge people, we just want your children to travel as safely as possible."
The Scottish Good Egg Guide at www.protectchild.co.uk/ states that an unrestrained child can be killed in an impact of speeds as low as 5mph.
If properly restrained a child is three times less likely to sustain a head injury in a crash than an unrestrained child.
In a collision at 30mph an unrestrained child would hit the windscreen, the front seat and anyone in with a force between 30 and 60 times their own body weight.
Police Scotland advises best practice when buying a child car seat, ensuring it has the ECE R44.04 mark and going to a reputable dealer who will fit the seat in the car and check its suitability.
The use of second hand seats is not recommended.
I-Size is a new regulation which is being phased in over the next five years.
Under the new laws, children must travel rearward-facing until they are 15 months old and seats will be tested for side impact.
Safety clinics will also be held at Tesco in Keith on August 29 from 10am until 2pm, and at Asda Elgin on September 5 and 6 from 10am to 3pm both days.
