Lake Charles -The Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force, along with the Louisiana State Police Troop D, will provide free child passenger safety seat checks in Lake Charles on Saturday, April 10, 2021. The event will take place at Lake Charles Toyota located at 3905 Gerstner Memorial Blvd. 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 Lake Charles Toyota.

Anyone who is unable to attend and would like to have a child safety seat inspected may make an appointment with Louisiana State Police Troop D by calling 337-491-2519.
