ALLEGAN COUNTY, MI – Child Safety Seat Inspections to be held at the Saugatuck Township Fire District Station located at 3342 Blue Star Highway, Saugatuck.
The Allegan County Sheriff’s Office and the Saugatuck Township Fire District have teamed up and are encouraging parents and caregivers to bring children in their car seats to a free Child Safety Seat Inspection.
Date: Tuesday, July 28
Time: 3:00 – 7:00 p.m.
A limited amount of replacement seats will be available at the inspection station for those who qualify.
Motor vehicle crashes remain a leading cause of death for young children. While 96% of parents and caregivers believe their child safety seats are installed correctly, research shows that 7 out of 10 children are improperly restrained. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has estimated that nearly 3 out of 4 parents do not properly use child restraints, and if you are one of them, that child safety seat may not protect your child the way it should.
