The City of Sevierville Police Department (SPD) has scheduled a Child Car Safety Seat Checkpoint at Larry Hill Pontiac/GMC, 1040 Dolly Parton Parkway, on Saturday, August 5, 2006, 10:00AM – 1:00PM.
Despite good intentions, over 90% of child car safety seats are improperly installed.  In fact, over 40% of child fatalities in traffic accidents are due to improperly installed child car safety seats. Certified SPD officers will be available to perform inspections of the seats, demonstrate proper installation techniques and offer general assistance.
Last year, a new child car safety seat law went into effect.  The new law affects many children under the age of 9-years old. 
For additional information, please contact SPD at 453-5506.
