Independence Day weekend saw a number of events sponsored by the Illinois Tollway and Illinois State Police intended to help keep children safe. One of the aspects of the Kids Identification and Safety Seat events was an effort to improve child safety seat use among Illinois families. The events provided demonstrations and safety seat checks to help parents correctly install the important safety devices. In a car accident, a child's life may be saved by a properly installed safety seat.
Child safety seats are one of the best ways to protect a child in the event of a car accident. However, many parents don't understand how to choose the correct car seat or make sure it is installed correctly.
