Each year, thousands of young children are killed or injured in car crashes. Proper use of car safety seats can greatly reduce risk and help keep kids safe. Join the Utah County Health Department and Safe Kids for a free car seat check on Saturday, June 9th from 10 a.m. to noon in the Toys-R-Us / RC Willey parking lot (40 E. University Parkway, Orem). Parents and care-givers will be shown how to correctly install, adjust, and use child safety restraints in order to maximize their effectiveness by certified child passenger safety technicians. Special instruction will also be given regarding the new Booster Seat Law, and parents will be shown how to determine when an older child is ready to graduate from a booster seat to adult safety belts. Inspections will be conducted on a first come/first served basis. Spanish-speaking technicians will also be available. A free hot dog lunch will also be provided by RC Willey.
