RIDGEWAY – Troop C of the Pennsylvania State Police will continue its efforts to reduce the number of improperly installed child passenger safety seats by offering free seat checks to the public.
At these events troopers will examine all child restraint seats for proper installation and parents will receive instructions on how to correct any deficiencies. These checks also help identify defective seats and seats that are affected by recalls from the manufacturer.
With the recent implementation of additions to the Pennsylvania Child Safety Seat Law, the checks provide an excellent opportunity to have any questions regarding the regulations answered.
A check will be done in Clearfield at the Third Ward Fire Hall on 508 Martin Street, at the intersection of Park Street on Feb. 12 between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
The monthly child passenger seat fitting stations are conducted free of charge at all Troop C installations. At the Clearfield barracks, this is the third Wednesday of every month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. At the DuBois Barracks, this is the second Tuesday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
