Free child safety seat inspections will take place next week in Lebanon. The inspections are sponsored by the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety, Marion County Health Department and Marion County EMS.
The inspections will take place between 3 and 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 27, at the Marion County EMS Building, 436 W. Walnut Street in Lebanon.
Nationally certified child passenger safety technicians will be educating people about the correct installation and usage of child safety seats. They will also check seats for damage and for seats that have been recalled.
According to the press release about the seat inspections, participants should expect about 20 minutes per seat inspection.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 90 percent of child safety seats are installed incorrectly in the United States. Correct installation of the safety seats makes them more effective in reducing the risk of fatalities and hospitalization in the event of an accident, according to the press release.
