TROOP D NEWS RELEASE

Free Child Passenger Safety Check Event in Jennings

 

On Saturday, December 14, 2013, the Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force will provide free child passenger safety seat checks inJennings.  These checks will be conducted by child passenger safety technicians who will provide hands-on child safety seat inspections and answer questions at no charge. 

 

The event will take place at the Jefferson Davis Parish Fairgrounds located on South Lake Arthur Avenue(LA Highway 26 on the south side of Jennings) near Scott Streetfrom 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Seats will be checked in the covered arena area which will allow the event to take place regardless of weather conditions.

 

With many people planning holiday trips this time of year, it is important to ensure children are properly restrained in the vehicles they travel in.  It is estimated that at least 3 out of 4 child restraint systems are being misused.  This child passenger safety check event is a great opportunity for caregivers to ensure their child is in an age and weight appropriate child restraint and to have that child restraint checked and/or installed free of charge.

 

Child safety seats and booster seats save lives.  They offer the best protection for children in the event of a crash.  During the past 30 years, approximately 8,959 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 that caregivers ensure children are properly restrained in an appropriate child safety seat, booster seat, or seat belt—every trip, every time.

 

Participating agencies include Louisiana State Police Troop D, Jennings Police Department, and Lake Charles Fire Department.

 

Support for this event is provided by the Jefferson Davis Parish Police Jury and the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission.
