BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) – The Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force, in association with University Medical Center New Orleans, is offering free child car seat inspections throughout the state in conjunction with National Seat Check Saturday and Child Passenger Safety Week from Sept. 17-23, 2017.

Professionals will be on hand at each event to ensure that child safety seats are properly installed and help make any needed changes. They will also install safety seats purchased for needy families with donations raised by employees of Louisiana’s 147 SONIC Drive-in restaurants. The seats were given free of charge to needy families who applied for the donation program.

Note that, while most events take place on Sept. 23, 2017, one in New Iberia, two in the Bogalusa area and seven in Baton Rouge are earlier.
