The Louisiana State Police wants each and every child in the area safe when traveling on the roads with their care givers so they are putting on an event geared toward checking your child safety seats or car seats to make sure they are safe for your kids to ride in your vehicle.

The event will take place at Lake Charles Toyota (3905 Gerstner Memorial Drive in Lake Charles) from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

When talking to Sgt. James Anderson with the Louisiana State Police he said, "At least 3 out of 4 child restraint systems are being misused.  This child passenger safety check event is a great opportunity for caregivers to ensure their child is in an age and weight appropriate child restraint and to have that child restraint checked and/or installed free of charge."

So mom's and dad's, grandma's and grandpa's or even caregivers, this is your opportunity to get your seat checked by professionals and make sure that it is the right size for your child!
