Keeping children safe while riding in vehicles is a top priority for the Vermont State Police as motor vehicle crashes remain a leading cause of death within the United States amongst children between the ages of 1 and 13 years old. The correct installation and use of car seats, booster seats, and seat belts is one of the most important actions that can be taken to prevent serious injury and/or death in a motor vehicle crash.

The New Haven Barracks will be conducting a FREE car seat check-up event on May 14, 2016. Certified child passenger safety technicians will be on hand to check car seats for proper installation and advise parents and caregivers how to choose the right car seats and install them properly in their vehicles. 

The event will be primarily appointment based, however drive-up visits will be welcome. It is encouraged that parents or caregivers have their children present during the fitting and installation of the car seat or booster seat. Additionally, it is encouraged that parents or caregivers bring their vehicle manual and car seat manuals.
