HARRISBURG - Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland) will host her annual car seat safety check on Thursday, May 31, 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.
“While my children are now older, I remember how difficult it was to install car seats properly in a vehicle,” Delozier said. “Car seats save lives, but only if used correctly. A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study estimated 46 percent of car seats are misused. I encourage parents and caregivers to take advantage of this opportunity to ensure the car seat in their vehicle is properly installed.”
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.
