Kentucky State Police will host a free car seat safety check event on February 28, 2019 at the KSP headquarters location (919 Versailles Road, Frankfort) from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Troopers who will be performing the car seat safety checks have completed a training course and are certified by Safe Kids Worldwide, a non-profit that offers programs meant to help communities keep children safe from injuries.
“Three out of four car seats are not used or installed properly,” says KSP Captain Chad Mills. “Parents and grandparents often struggle with car seat installation, so this is a great opportunity to have a trained expert assist them.”
No appointment is needed and families who plan to attend the event should bring their car seats, along with the vehicle the seats will be installed in, as well as the manual for the car seats and vehicles, if they have them, Mills said.
Kentucky law requires that any child who is 40 inches in height or less should be properly secured in a child restraint system. A child who is under eight years of age and between 40 and 57 inches in height should be secured in a booster seat. For more information please contact www.kentuckystatepolice.org
