The CHP Grass Valley Area will be hosting a child passenger safety seat checkup event on this Saturday, September 6, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Officer Greg Tassone says the event is also being supported by the Roamin’ Angels Car Club and the Gold Country Kiwanis.
During this free event, CHP officers and technicians will be on-hand to check car seats for proper installation and other problems.
Officer Tassone says parents/caregivers are encouraged to have their children present during the fitting and installation of the car seat or booster seat. The CHP will be giving out treats and other goodies to participating families.
The Kiwanis Club will be helping out as well providing information and educational handouts to participating families.
Funding for CHP’s program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
