Child Safety Seat Inspections

“Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 3 to 14, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, 2009. Research shows that as children age, they are less likely to be in the appropriate child safety seat for their age and weight. But, correctly used child safety and booster seats are extremely effective and reduce the risk of injury and death in crashes.” (Safe Kids-September 2011 Report)




The Spring Garden Township Police Department encourages parents and caregivers to ensure that child safety / booster seats are properly installed in their vehicle to reduce injuries, The Police Department has police officers certified as child safety seat technicians to install and perform child safety seat inspections.
