Car Seat Inspections

Did you know that California law requires all children be properly restrained in an appropriate car seat until they’re 8 years old and 4 feet 9 inches? We know the correct installation of a child restraint system can be a challenge. The Mammoth Lakes Police Department is committed to child safety and offers free car seat inspections by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, please call the Police Department at 760-965-3710 during business hours.

Important Instructions

  • You must bring the following to the appointment: the car seat, the car seat instruction manual, the vehicle the seat will be used in, and the vehicle owner's manual. The child using the seat must also be present. If the child hasn’t been born yet, the inspection can still be done.
  • Please remember, we only inspect car seats and you will be responsible for the final installation. Each inspection takes approximately 30 minutes.
