Child Safety Seat Checks to be Held in Clarion, Forest Counties

Tuesday, September 17, 2019 @ 12:09 AM

Posted by Aly Delp

child-safetyCLARION CO., Pa. – In conjunction with National Child Passenger Safety Week, the Pennsylvania State Police in Troop C continue their effort to reduce the number of improperly installed child safety seats by offering free safety seat checks to the public.

These checks help locate defective seats, seats that are affected by recalls from the manufacturer, and also provide an excellent opportunity to have any questions regarding the child passenger safety seat law answered. Pennsylvania law requires the following when transporting children in a motor vehicle:

  • Children from birth to 2 years of age are to be secured in an approved rear-facing child passenger safety seat
  • Children from 2 to 4 years of age are to be secured in an approved forward-facing child passenger safety seat
  • Children 4 to 8 years of age are to utilize an approved booster seat
  • Any person between 8 and 18 years of age, in any seating location in a vehicle, must be fastened in a seat belt

The Pennsylvania State Police will conduct free child passenger safety checks at the following locations:
