As part of National Child Passenger Safety Week, Pennsylvanian motorists are being encouraged to take part in free car seat checks across the state. The state’s Department of Transportation has partnered with local law enforcement agencies to help educate parents on the correct installation of car seats and promote laws regarding seat belts. In 2011, nine children tragically died in automobile accidents, with an additional 2,487 being injured. Pennsylvania’s DOT has enabled 141 fitting stations to operate across the state, where 5,000 individual car seat checks were conducted in 2011 alone.
