Child Safety Seat Inspection To Be Held In Georgia
What is one of the leading causes of death for children?
Let us just say that being in car crashes and other vehicular accidents has been known and has been proven to be the leading cause of death for children and infants. Sometimes, during accidents and crashes, the grown ups walk out of the vehicle alive but only with a few injuries. However, not all children passengers are lucky enough.
That is why organizations have found this to be quite alarming. And as part of their campaign so as to reduce the number of children who die in vehicular crashes and accidents, they would be holding a child safety seat inspection event in the state of Georgia. Those who sponsored and organized the event include 21st Century Insurance, the Department of Public Safety for the state of Georgia, John W. Oxendine who is the Insurance Commissioner, and the Georgia’s Governor’s Office of Highway Safety department. During the mentioned event, these organizations would be informing those who join and attend the event that it is really important for parents and grown ups to follow the given laws regarding child safety restraints.
There would be certified technicians during the aforementioned event. These people would be doing child safety seat inspections. They would also be checking if these child safety seats have been properly installed and mounted. So if you live in Georgia, you may want to be part of the event and let your child safety seats be checked. That way, you can rest assured that even if you do meet accidents along the road, your child would be protected well.
According to the laws in Georgia, children who are under six years old are required to be seated in a child safety seat or even a booster seat. Of course, the child safety seat or the booster seat should be just right for the child’s weight and height. You can browse through the Internet regarding the given specifications for these seats. The law in Georgia also mandates that children who are six years old and below should be seated in the rear of the vehicle and not in the front.
This is a really good move on the part of the organizers and also a very beneficial event for parents and drivers. Perhaps if organizations would also hold events like this which would be checking your vehicle’s Saturn auto parts and see if they need replacement or not, many lives would sure be saved.
