TxDOT OFFERS FREE CHILD SAFETY SEAT INSPECTIONS TO SAVE YOUNG LIVES
SEPT. 16, 2015
ELLIS COUNTY The Texas Department of Transportation will hold a free child safety seat checkup on Saturday, Sept. 26, at the Avenue Church in Waxahachie as part of national Child Passenger Safety Week.
TxDOT offers free child safety seat checks at the agency's 25 statewide district offices and encourages all caregivers to make an appointment to have their child's safety seat inspected and installed properly. TxDOT reminds all Texas that properly restraining their children while riding in vehicles is an everyday, year-round responsibility. It's also the law.
The event in Waxahachie is from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., at Avenue Church, 1716 N. Hwy. 77. To schedule an appointment, call 972-825-5175.
In 2014, crashes on Texas roads killed 81 children younger than 8 years of age. In 2013, that number was 67. Texas law requires all children under 8 years old - unless they are taller than 4 feet 9 inches - to be in a child safety seat whenever they ride in a passenger vehicle. Failure to properly restrain a child can result in a ticket up to $250.
