Troopers to Offer Free Child Safety Seat Inspections Statewide
Pennsylvania State Police will offer free child safety seat inspections statewide in conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s “Click It or Ticket” campaign through December 2nd.
During the campaign period, troopers will conduct traffic safety checkpoints to educate the public about traffic laws, focusing enforcement efforts in areas with traditionally high numbers of crashes.
Troopers conducting inspections will demonstrate how to correctly install and use child safety seats.
According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the state’s current seat belt usage rate is slightly under 84 percent. State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan says that he is directing troopers to adopt a zero-tolerance policy toward violations of the state’s seat belt and child passenger restraint laws during this campaign period, however, no enforcement will be taken against anyone at the free safety seat inspection sites if the seat is found to be incorrectly installed.
