PennDOT Introduces Virtual Child Car Seat Checks
The pandemic has forced our society into a virtual world, PennDOT, and several organizations are now teaming up for a Virtual Child Car Seat Check.
According to a press release from the Traffic Injury Prevention Project, once an appointment has been scheduled, parents must provide the children’s age, weight and height, along with the car seat information, and vehicle information, along with any questions they might have for the technicians.
Once the checkup appointment is completed, each child will be mailed a special package from Santa Claus, as a thank you for being safe.
According to Pennsylvania Child Passenger Safety Laws, your child must be in a rear facing car seat from birth to 2 years, and must be properly secured in an approved child safety seat until they are 4 years of age
The law also requires Children ages 4 to 8 to be secured in a approved booster seat.
After your child reaches the age of 8, they can be in a secured car safety belt.
Pennsylvania residents can call 1-800-CAR-BELT (1-800-227-2358) for information on transportation safety issues, or e mail firstname.lastname@example.org
