LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - It’s a quick checkup that can save a life.

On Saturday, the Texas Department of Transportation will be holding its Child Seat Inspection event.

Parents can start lining up as early as 8 a.m. to have a technician inspection their child’s car seat.

It’s on a first come, first serve basis.

Parents and caregivers must have the child present and of course have a car seat for the inspection.

Texas law requires all children under eight years old to be in a car seat unless they are taller than four feet, nine inches.

Failure to do so can result in a ticket up to $250.

The inspections will happen at the rear side of the TxDOT office located on 1817 Bob Bullock.

The event will end at 11:30 a.m.

The inspections are free of charge.
