On Saturday, March 29, 2014, Louisiana State Police Troop D and the Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force will provide free child passenger safety seat checks in Lake Charles. These checks will be conducted by child passenger safety technicians who will provide hands-on child safety seat inspections and answer questions at no charge.
The event will take place at Lake Charles Toyota (3905 Gerstner Memorial Drive, Lake Charles) from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
State Police estimate at least 3 out of 4 child restraint systems are being misused. During the past 30 years, nearly 9,000 lives have been saved by the use of child restraints according to the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Participating agencies include Louisiana State Police Troop D, Impact Lake Charles AmeriCorps, and the Ward 1 (Moss Bluff) Fire Department.
