Congratulations on the new addition to the family. You're ready to become parents, you've done your research and bought just about everything you could possibly need, including a child safety seat for those trips to Grandma's house.
But do you know how to use the child seat correctly? A surprising number of parents don't know, according to the California Highway Patrol. CHP officers will be on hand Saturday to help you figure it out.
The free Child Safety Seat Inspection Event will be held Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Marin Area CHP office at 53 San Clemente Drive in Corte Madera.
Officers will be available to inspect car seats for proper installation as well as possible defects or recalls, and to provide the public with information regarding safety and state law. A new child safety restraint law went into effect on January 1, 2012.
RSVP to (415) 924-1100.
