WHY:    
Officers from Valley Traffic Division will initiate a Car Seat Safety Inspection, Education & Enforcement Operation in the area of Van Nuys Division, as part of the “Pedestrian and Child Safety Campaign” scheduled for LAPD’s Valley Bureau during the 2010 summer months.

In addition, traffic enforcement officers will promote child seat safety through the enforcement of anyone who is observed violating the rules of the road as it pertains to child passenger restraint systems.

Motor vehicle crashes continue to be the leading cause of death for children ages 3 to 14, according to 2006 figures, which are the latest mortality data currently available from the National Center for Health Statistics.  Certified child seat inspectors will verify free of charge, the installation of your child seat.  The mobile inspection station will be available for families with children ages 0 through 6.    

Nine out of 10 car seats are installed incorrectly.  When properly used, child safety seats can reduce childhood deaths by as much as 70 percent.  

CONTACT:   
For more information, please call Officer Robert Norman at 818-644-8143 or via e-mail at 31844@lapd.lacity.org.
