- Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland) will host a car seat safety check on Thursday, June 9, from 4-7 p.m., in partnership with L.B. Smith Ford Lincoln, 1100 Market St., Lemoyne
Certified car seat technicians will be present to ensure that child safety seats are properly and securely installed. In addition, parents and caregivers will receive instruction on correct car seat installation procedures.
“Having a car seat properly installed can make a critical difference to a child in a car accident. They are proven to be lifesaving and can reduce the severity of injuries in these unfortunate circumstances. I want to give families in the 88th District the opportunity to know their car seats are installed correctly to protect our kids,” Delozier said.
Vehicle incidents are a leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13. Research shows that child safety seats, when properly installed, reduce the risk of fatal injury by 71% for infants and 54% for toddlers.
Pennsylvania law dictates that until the age of 2, children must be in a rear facing car seat until the child outgrows the maximum height and weight constraints designated by the manufacturer. Children ages 4 through 8 must be in an approved booster seat when riding in a vehicle.
RSVPs are recommended but not required for those attending the car seat safety check.
