Local police offer child safety seat instruction
Barrington and Mount Prospect police are among 80 departments statewide offering child safety seat instruction this Saturday, Sept. 22. The event at the Barrington Police Department, 400 Northwest Hwy., runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; in Mount Prospect, the event in the parking lot of Saint Emily Catholic Church, 1400 E. Central Road, runs an hour longer, ending at 2 p.m. Certified child passenger safety technicians will be on hand to check car seats for proper installation and advise parents, grandparents, and caregivers how to choose the right car seats and install them properly in their vehicles. This is a free event and no appointment is needed. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13. The focus of this year's Child Passenger Safety Week is on reaching out to grandparents, as recent research indicates that they are less likely to follow best practice guidelines.
