Child car seat inspections to be held in Elkhart

Posted:
Want to be on the safe side when it comes to your child's car seat?

Safe Kids Elkhart County, along with officers from the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department and the Elkhart County Traffic Safety partnership, will conduct child seat inspections on Saturday, July 12th from 9am to noon.

This will take place in the parking lot of the Encore Movie Theater (2701 Cassopolis Street in Elkhart).  

Officers and certified car seat technicians will be on-hand to answer questions about seat belt usage and the proper installation of child restraint seats.  

Anyone who may transport children in a vehicle, or those with questions, is encouraged to visit with officers to ensure that they are installing their child seats correctly.  

Many child safety seats are not properly installed and have the potential to fail to protect the children riding in them.
 
By educating and encouraging the public to use seat belts and child restraints, officers are hoping to reduce the chances of serious injury and death to drivers traveling on the roadways during the summer months.
