- Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland) will host her annual car seat safety check on Thursday, June 1, from 4-7 p.m., at L.B. Smith Ford Lincoln, 1100 Market St., Lemoyne
Local law enforcement will be on hand to ensure that child safety seats are properly secured in vehicles. Parents and caregivers also will be instructed on the correct installation procedures.
“Although my children are now teenagers, I vividly recall the difficulty with installing car seats properly in my vehicle,” Delozier said. “Our children are treasured, and we want to take every precaution necessary to protect them. Unfortunately, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics show 46 percent of car seats were not being used properly. My hope is this event will improve this rate in our area.”
Pennsylvania law requires all children under the age of 4 to be fastened in a car seat while riding in a vehicle. Until the age of 2, children must be rear facing. Children ages 4 through 7 must be in an approved booster seat when riding in a vehicle.
