Police Partners with Law Offices to Offer Child Safety Seat Clinic
On October 8, the Greensboro Police Department is offering a child safety seat clinic from 10 am to 1 pm at the offices of Egerton & Associates, 230 N. Eugene St. This free event will feature child passenger safety technicians teaching drivers about child passenger safety and how to properly install child seats.
According to the website safekids.org “More than 2,600 children under 13 are involved in a car crash daily.” The latest research from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows 59 percent of car seats are not installed correctly.
The Greensboro Police Department and Egerton & Associates want to make Greensboro a safer city for all motorists. The purpose of this event is to reduce the likelihood of a serious or deadly injury to a child in the event of a collision.
This will also serve as a checking station for the Child Passenger Safety Diversion Program (CPSDP). Motorists who have received a citation for a child restraint violation will have the opportunity to have the citation dismissed if they attend this free event.
