ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - The Louisiana Child Passenger Safety Task Force and  Louisiana State Police Troop E are conducting a free child passenger safety seat check-up event on Saturday, September 21.  It's from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Walker Automotive, 1616 MacArthur Drive in Alexandria. 

According to a release from Louisiana State Police, it is a proven fact that car seats and booster seats save lives. These devices can offer the best protection for children in the event of a crash.  The release also said that approximately three out of four child seats are not used correctly. 

This event is part of the "National Child Passenger Safety Week"  that runs through September 15-21.  Nationally certified child passenger safety technicians will be on hand to provide proper installation and instruction.  There will also be a limited number of free child safety seats available.

Every Louisiana State Police troop is recognized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as a child safety seat "inspection station".  Troop E Troopers are available seven days a week to inspect car seats.  Appointments can be made by calling 318- 769-9872.

The Louisiana Highway Safety Commission, and the Hispanic Committee of the South are also involved in making this event possible.
