BOONE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Research shows 85 percent of child safety seats in Indiana are misused.
That's according to the Boone County Sheriff's Office.
And that's why the Sheriff's Office is teaming up with the Boone County Traffic Safety partnership to sponsor a free car seat clinic.
Bring your car seat. At the clinic, technicians will check your seat for proper placement and installation.
The Sheriff's Office will also have some free car seats available for those eligible.
All technicians are certified by Indiana Safe Kids to make sure kids are safe when traveling down county roads.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA, says a properly installed car seat can reduce a child's risk of injury in a car crash by up to 70 percent.
The free clinic will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22 at the Boone County Sheriff's Office.
