Lowenthal, CHP offering events about child safety seats

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, three out of four children in child safety seats are not property secured. Child passenger safety seats are the major factor in saving small children from severe injuries or death in a moving vehicle. When used correctly, child safety seats can reduce fatal car injuries by 71 percent for infants and 54 percent for children ages one to four.
Assemblymember Bonnie Lowenthal, D-Long Beach, in conjunction with the California Highway Patrol, is conducting two car-seat safety events, which will provide hands-on training, education, and information on the proper use of children’s safety seats.
