Car seat inspections and education will be available to the community on Saturday, September 20th from 10 AM until 2 PM at the Town of Whitestown Police Department located at 8539 Clark Mills Road. This event is part of "National Seat Check Saturday" and will include car seat inspections by certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians. Technicians will be on hand to teach parents and caregivers how to choose the right car seats for their children and how to install and use them correctly. New car seats will also be available to those in need.
"Car seats, booster seats and seat belts are often used incorrectly," said Police Chief Donald Wolanin, "and one child under age 13 is involved in a crash every 34 seconds. No parent wants to ever get it wrong when it comes to their children's safety. That's why we're hosting this consumer education event during National Seat Check Saturday. Parents can come out and know for sure that their kids are as safe as possible when riding in a car"
