Free Child Safety Seat Inspection Saturday
James Anderson of the Louisiana State Police was the special guest on our show on Wednesday morning and he joined us to tell us about a very important event going on this Saturday at Lake Charles Toyota on Highway 14 this Saturday.
Louisiana State Police Troop D and the Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force will be conducting free child safety seat inspections from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. this Saturday and, while most of think we know how to install a child safety seat correctly, James Anderson told us that a shocking 3 out of 4 child safety seats are not correctly installed. That's a pretty sobering statistic when you think about the number of injuries and deaths improperly installed seats could cause.
Add to that number child safety seats that are not up to standards and you can see why these free inspections are so important.
Support for the event is provided by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission and Lake Charles Toyota.
