(LANSING, Mich.) -- Parents across Michigan are being reminded about the importance of having their children ride in car seats as National Child Passenger Safety Week is observed in the state.
Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Week is being observed from Sept. 17 through Sept. 22. Michigan State Police announced that throughout the week, CPS technicians will be available to help parents properly install car seats in their vehicles and also give them information about using car seats.
"CPS technicians are trained to know about car seats and teach drivers the best practices for car seat use in different situations," Michael L. Prince, director of the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning, said in a statement. "In as little as 30 minutes at a car seat check, drivers will receive hands-on advice and instruction on how to choose the proper car seat and use it correctly."
