Louisiana State Police Giving Out Free Booster Seats This Saturday Sept. 24 In Lake Charles
Louisiana State Police Troop D is participating in the National Seat Check this Saturday, September 24th in Lake Charles and has partnered with the Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force to provide free child passenger safety seat checks.
This is your chance to have professionals check your child's car seat or booster seat for free. It's a way to make sure that you have the proper seat installed in your vehicle for the size of your child.
There are no tickets issued for the wrong seats. The event is to educate and help you make sure you have your child in the proper seats while you are traveling. That way you know your child will always be properly secure and safe in your vehicle.
Sgt. James Anderson said,
Car seats and booster seats save lives. These devices offer the best protection for children in the event of a crash. It’s estimated over 11,600 lives of children under 5 have been saved since 1975 because of child restraint use according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The free child safety check event is going on this Saturday, September 24th from 9:00 am to Noon. It will be located at Southwest Beverage at 3860 Broad Street in Lake Charles. It is right off of I-210 at the Broad Street exit.
The Louisiana State Police will be giving out free booster seats on Saturday while supplies last. If you would like to get one of these booster seats, your child must be at least four years old and weigh at least 50 pounds. You also need to make sure that your vehicle and child are present to ensure proper fit.
