Don't take chances with your child's safety. Attend the Downers Grove Police Department's Child Safety Seat Event on Saturday, May 5, 2012, from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM. The event will be held in the parking lot of the School District #58 Administrative Center, 1860 63rd Street, in Downers Grove. There is no charge for this service and no appointment is necessary. A certified child safety seat technician will demonstrate how to correctly install your child's car seat.
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children ages 2 to 14; a fact directly related to improper use of child safety seats and lack of seat belt use. In a 30 mph crash, a 10 pound infant is thrust towards the impact point and with a force equivalent to 300 pounds. The only way to adequately protect all vehicle passengers, especially children, is to have them properly restrained. In Illinois, ALL passengers in a motor vehicle must be buckled up.
