Shocking Stat on Child Safety Seats in Lake Area
I had James Anderson of the Louisiana State Police on the show this morning and, while we were talking, James told me that 3 out of 4 child safety seats are not installed correctly. Three out of 4! Now, not to get too real, but a safety seat that is not installed correctly could be even more dangerous than no safety seat at all.
How effective are the safety seats for kids? Well, according to the Louisiana State Police (LSP) during the last 30 years, it is estimated that safety seats have saved about 9,000 lives! Now, that is an impressive number. If you're a child care giver of any kind and what to make sure your safety seat is up-to-date and installed correctly, the LSP is going to help you this Saturday at Lake Charles Toyota.
It's a free event and it only takes a minute for nationally certified experts to check out the child seat and make sure it is installed correctly. The inspections get under way at 10a.m. this Saturday and wraps up at 1p.m. The experts will make sure that the safety seat in your car has not been subject to any recall and that it meets all federal stands. of course, if your car seat is installed incorrectly, they'll show you how to take care of that as well.
Lake Charles Toyota is located at 3905 Gerstner Memorial Drive.
