CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY WEEK

CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY WEEK, September 18-24, 2022 highlights the importance of all children being correctly secured in the right occupant restraint for the child’s age, weight, height, and developmental needs. The campaign is dedicated to helping parents and care givers make sure their children ride as safely as possible—every trip, every time. Each day, too many children are secured in the wrong car seats, ride in car seats that have been installed incorrectly, or ride completely unbuckled. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motor vehicle crashes are a leading killer of children. Car seats, booster seats and seat belts can make all the difference during a crash.

Upper Saucon Police Department has 2 certified technicians that can inspect your child car safety seat to make sure it is properly installed. These inspections are done at police department by appointment only. To make an appointment you can call 610-282-3064.
