This week is National Child Passenger Safety Week and the Louisiana State Police want to ensure your car seats are installed properly. 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. In an effort to improve child safety, Troopers will be on-hand around the state this Saturday, September 26, 2020 to check your car seat and teach parents and caregivers the correct way to use and install the child safety seat.
Louisiana State Police is a partner with the Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force (LPSTF) and nationally certified car seat technicians will be manning each event in Louisiana. This service is free to the public. Stop by one of our locations to ensure your child’s safety in the vehicle. All events begin at 9 am-12 noon.
