LSP to offer free car seat checks for National Child Passenger Safety Week on Sept. 26

Louisiana

(KTAL/KMSS) – Louisiana State Police says troopers will be on-hand around the state this weekend to check car seats and teach parents and caregivers the correct way to use and install child safety seats.

The service is free to the public and it is scheduled for Saturday, September 26 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. LSP is partnering with the Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force (LPSTF) and nationally certified car seat technicians will be manning each event in the state.

“This week is National Child Passenger Safety Week and we want to ensure your car seats are installed properly,” Louisiana State Police said in a Facebook post Friday.

“Far too often, we witness children killed or injured in preventable motor vehicle crashes across Louisiana. Car seats significantly reduce the risk of injury and death when installed properly and the child is harnessed appropriately.
