GLENVILLE — Local parents can receive free car seat checks at a pair of events from certified child passenger safety technicians as part of an initiative from the New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.
The first safety check event will take place today at the Town of Glenville Police Department from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
An additional free safety check will occur on September 20 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Jumpin’ Jack’s Drive-In restaurant in Scotia.
For more information on the Scotia event, contact Village of Scotia Sgt. Daniel Bean at (518) 374-3110.
The safety events are part of a year-round initiative in which state and local law enforcement agencies and various community safety partners offer free car seat inspections to parents and caregivers.
Trained safety technicians use the “Learn, Practice, and Explain” model to educate parents on how to choose and properly install the appropriate seat for their child’s age and size and their vehicle, so it can be used correctly every time.
Schenectady County residents who cannot attend the safety check events can make an appointment at AAA Northway in Schenectady for a free safety check. Residents can contact Kimberly Dixon at (518) 374-4575, ext. 3103 to make a free appointment.
