DeRidder - On Saturday, March 27, 2021, the Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force, in cooperation with the Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office and Louisiana State Police Troop D, will provide free child passenger safety seat checks in DeRidder. The event will take place at Green Chevrolet located at 307 East First Street in DeRidder from 11:00 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 and answer questions while following COVID safety protocols.
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 Green Chevrolet.
Anyone who is unable to attend and would like to have a child safety seat inspected may make an appointment with the Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office by calling 337-460-5443 or Louisiana State Police Troop D at 337-491-2519.
