KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Prairie Village police said Wednesday that “extremely dangerous” fake car seats for children have started to pop up in the Kansas City metro.
Police said in a Facebook post that the fake seats “put your child at a substantially greater risk in a crash.”
The fake car seats have “flimsy” seat and buckle material, and many do not feature a chest clip, police said.
Also, the fake seats have little to no wording on the warning tag, whereas the real seats will “have a lot of stickers and writing, mostly in English and some Spanish,” police said in the Facebook post.
Anyone with questions on a car seat can contact the Prairie Village Police Department Traffic Unit at 913-385-4656.
