Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced a Child Passenger Safety Checkup Station will be held Wednesday, May 29, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Walmart store located at 16759 Highway 3235 in Galliano. The public is invited to drop by to get their child safety seats inspected by certified technicians who will also demonstrate proper step-by-step installation. No child safety seat violation tickets will be issued at this event.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has established car seat recommendations that advise parents and caregivers to keep their children in their restraint types for as long as possible before moving them to the next type of seat. For maximum safety, everyone should have their car seat installation inspected by a certified Child Passenger Safety technician. It is also important to know that all children aged 12 and under should always ride in the back seat.
