AAA Texas and Safe Kids of Greater Houston Host the Biggest Free Car Seat Check Up in Harris County

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - July 12, 2007) -

WHAT:  AAA Texas and the Greater Houston Safe Kids coalition will host a
       free child safety seat inspection from 2 PM to 5 PM at the Humble
       Convention Center located at 8233 Will Clayton Parkway in
       Humble, TX.

WHY:   "Past inspections have shown that parents are not installing their
       child safety seats correctly," said AAA Texas spokeswoman, Rose
       Rougeau. "Installation is not a simple procedure due to the
       diversity of safety seats marketed by different manufacturers and
       the various restraint systems offered in motor vehicles today,"
       added Rougeau.

       In Texas, motorists can be stopped and cited for lack of or improper
       safety restraint.

       Interested parents need to simply bring the following with them to
       the safety seat inspection: their automobile, their child who rides
       in the safety seat and the safety seat. Law enforcement,
       firefighters and other nationally certified child passenger safety
       technicians will teach parents how to properly install the safety
       seat, check to see if the seat is in good working condition and
       check for safety recalls.

WHEN:  Monday, July 23, 2007 (2 PM to 5 PM)

WHERE: Humble Convention Center, 8233 Will Clayton Parkway, Humble, TX
