Free Child Seat Check Event in Lake Charles
Lake Charles - On Saturday, March 11, 2023, Louisiana State Police Troop D and the Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force will provide free child passenger safety seat checks in Lake Charles. The event will take place at Lake Charles Toyota located at 3905 Gerstner Memorial Blvd. from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Child safety seat inspections will be conducted by nationally certified child passenger safety seat technicians who will assist with proper installation.
Child safety seats and booster seats, when used properly, save lives. They offer the best protection for children in the event of a crash. 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). It is important caregivers ensure children are properly restrained in an appropriate child safety seat, booster seat, or seat belt – every trip, every time.
Support for this event is provided by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission and Lake Charles Toyota.
Anyone who is unable to attend and would like to have a child safety seat inspected may make an appointment with Louisiana State Police Troop D by calling 337-491-2513.
