New York State Police To Offer Child Safety Seat Checks in Unadilla
It's a fact that properly installed child safety seats save the lives of children. According to Saferide4Kids, "anywhere from 72% to 84% of child restraints show some sort of misuse. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows 46% of misuse that can interfere with the safety of the child in the child restraint.
As a parent, I can tell you that it doesn't matter how smart you are unless you are specially trained to install a child safety seat, chances are you'll get it wrong no matter how carefully you read your vehicle's owner manual instructions on installing a child safety seat. No worries parents, you can get a free child safety seat check for your installed seats on December 23 from 3 pm to 6 pm in Unadilla, NY. Certified Passenger Safety Technicians will install, inspect and/or check your child's car seat. This event will be held at Troop C Headquarters located at 823 NY-7 in Unadilla.
Appointments are preferred but those who drop in for a check will not be turned away. For an appointment call Trooper Shannon Hartz at 607-561-7604. Don't miss your opportunity to make sure your child's safety seat is properly installed since this is only offered a few times during the year.
