Expired or old car seats involved in an accident should never be reused or resold. In an effort to keep these seats off the streets, Safe Kids Cobb County will accept car seats at various Cobb County locations, including Station 51 on Saturday, April 22, 2017.
All car seats have an expiration date that can be found on the manufacturer’s label. If there is not an exact expiration date listed, a general rule is 6 years from the manufacture date. Seats used after their expiration date may not be safe or function properly in a crash.
