It just might be the most important minutes you spend with your child. It’s the time it takes to safely install your child’s safety seat and restraint as you get ready to hit the road. Stacy Lucas is with the local health department, where they are dedicated to making children safe for that ride in a vehicle.
Many health departments provide free instructions on child safety seats, and can even help with the installation. Contact them to set-up an appointment, and there are often free safety seats for families that qualify. This week is Child Passenger Safety Week across America.
