Car seat checkup event set for Saturday

The California Highway Patrol Grass Valley Area will be hosting a child passenger safety seat checkup event from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday.

“During this free event, CHP officers and technicians will be on hand to check car seats for proper installation and other problems, such as a safety recall,” said spokesman Greg Tassone.

“We will also advise parents and caregivers how to choose the correct seats and install them properly in their vehicles. In addition, free car seats will be available for parents and caregivers involved in a qualifying social assistance program in the area. Supplies are limited ­— inquire at the event for further information.”

The event will occur in the circular driveway of the new CHP office on McCourtney Road, directly across from the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Drive-up visits are welcome and parents or caregivers are encouraged to have their children present during the fitting and installation of the car seat or booster seat.

This event is also being supported by the Roamin’ Angels Car Club and the Gold Country Kiwanis, Tassone said.

Visitors participating in the event will be provided with a complimentary ticket to enter the Roamin’ Angels Car Show being hosted at the fairgrounds.

“We hope to see those of you with young children at this important event,” he said.

Funding for the program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
