CHP to offer free child safety seat check-ups Saturday

The California Highway Patrol will conduct a free child passenger safety seat check-up event Saturday at the Target store, 2505 Riverside Blvd., Sacramento.

Certified child passenger safety technicians will be on hand from 8 to 11 a.m. to check car seats for proper installation, and to advise parents and caregivers how to choose appropriate car seats and properly install them in their vehicle.

Drive-up visits are welcome. Parents or caregivers are encouraged to have their children present during the fitting and installation of the car seat or booster seat.

A California law that took effect Jan. 1, 2012 extended by two years the length of time a child must use a child passenger restraint or safety seat while riding in a motor vehicle. A car seat or booster seat is required until the age of 8, unless the child is at least 4 feet 9 inches tall.

Funding for the safety seat check-up event is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
