The California Highway Patrol in conjunction with San Benito County Public Health and the Childhood Injury Prevention Coalition (ChIP) , is having a car seat event!
Properly buckling your children in before every trip in your car is critical!
Thousands of children are injured or killed every year by safety seats that are improperly fastened by parents or caretakers. Remember, most collisions occur within a mile of the home, so buckle your child in a safety seat for every trip, no matter how short. If you're not confident of how to properly secure your child in a safety seat, stop by our next car seat event.
California Law (Effective 01/01/2012):
Children under the age of 8 must be secured in a car seat or booster seat in the back seat.
Children under the age of 8 who are 4' 9" or taller may be secured by a safety belt in the back seat.
