ARDMORE, OK -- The city of Ardmore partnered up with it's fire department Friday morning for it's monthly car seat check.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say more than 148,000 children were injured in vehicle crashes in the United States in 2011.

City organizers for the seat check say injuries to most children in wrecks are caused by the improper use of cars seats.

"Most injuries that happen to children and they're in a car seat, if they've been injured it's because it's not installed properly," said Amber Wilson, program director for the car seat check program. "So the odds are if it's not installed properly then your child could get hurt."

 Wilson says the city and the fire department perform checks on car seats every month.

If you have an old seat you can get a new one for only $10.
