Is your child seat safe?

Two free Child Passenger Safety Checks are set for early April in Letcher County.

The first event will be held on Tuesday, April 8, from 3-6 p.m. at the Letcher Fire and Rescue Station on Highway 7 at Jeremiah.

The second event is set for Wednesday, April 9, at the Jenkins Fire Department on Main Street in Jenkins, also from 3-6 p.m.

Cosponsors of the events are the Kentucky River Area Development District, Kentucky State Police, and Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement.

“Ninety-five percent of the child safety seats in Kentucky are incorrectly installed,” said Terry Tackett, Drive Smart Coordinator for Highway District 12. “We encourage people to attend these free checks and make sure their child or children are being transported safely. You must have your child or grandchild with you when you come.”

Please allow 20 minutes per seat.
