Alexandria, LA – Free Child Safety Seat Check on Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Child Safety Seat Event At Troop E In Alexandria

Louisiana State Police Troop E will be conducting a free child passenger safety seat check-up event on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. The event will take place at Troop E, 1710 Odom Street, Alexandria, LA. No appointment is necessary.

It is a proven fact that car seats and booster seats save lives. These devices offer the best protection for children in the event of a crash. However, approximately 3 out of 4 child seats are not used correctly. This misuse rate can be attributed to the great variety of child seats available, the great range of children’s weights and heights, and the vast array of vehicles in today’s market. These misuses span all races, educational levels, and socioeconomic status.

Nationally certified child passenger safety technicians will be on site to provide proper installation and instruction.

Every Louisiana State Police troop is recognized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) as a child safety seat “Inspection Station”. Troop E troopers/technicians are available seven days a week to inspect car seats. Appointments can be made by calling (318) 769-9872.
