Did you know that the most common mistakes made when installing a child’s car seat can also be the most deadly? Did you know that, in 2015, 214 children died in the United States from not being buckled up during a traffic accident?
This Saturday, September 23rd, is the perfect time to get your car seat checked by an expert! Four Will County locations have been designated for parents and caregivers to participate in this year’s Child Passenger Safety Week campaign. Will County Sheriff’s Office, along with other local police agencies, will be on hand to answer questions, make sure your child is buckled in the correct seat for their age and size, and to double check that your child’s seat is properly installed.
Please join us and be confident that your child is buckled up safely and securely!
