Statistics show that at least four out of five car seats are used incorrectly. Improper use of a child safety seat can lead to severe injury and/or death. Parents and caregivers may call Parkview Whitley Hospital’s safety technician at (260) 609-8099 to schedule an appointment to have a car-seat installation checked. Also, adults will be provided materials and instructions on proper child-passenger safety and car-seat installation.
The Governor’s Council on Impaired & Dangerous Driving funds the program, with technical support provided by the Automotive Safety Program at Riley Hospital for Children, Indiana University School of medicine.
