(Frankfort, KY) - Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages four to 14. Keeping children safe on the road means putting them in the right restraint at the right age.
KSP Post 16 is announcing a permanent child safety seat inspection station. Post 16 Troopers have been trained as certified child safety seat technicians.
Our permanent inspection station is available to make sure parents and childcare providers know and follow every one of the 4 Steps for Kids guidelines.
The 4 Steps for Kids are:
While most infants and toddlers ride in the correct child safety seat, less than 10 percent of the children who should be in booster seats use one. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends that children who have outgrown child safety seats be properly restrained in booster seats in the back seat until they are at least eight years old, unless they are 4'9" tall. A booster seat lifts a child up so that a safety belt can fit correctly. Without a booster seat, a small child can be ejected from a vehicle during a crash.
Kentucky State Police Post 16 will have technicians available to inspect child passenger safety seats and their installation every Wednesday from 8:00 a.m. until noon local time. Additionally, Kentucky State Police Post 16 also offers child safety seat checks to the public by appointment.
