According to the National Highway Travel Survey (NHTS), “Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children from 3 to 14 years old.”
On the first Wednesday of every month, the Overland Park Police Department conducts free child car seat safety inspections. These inspections are offered from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm and will take approximately thirty minutes to complete.
A certified child passenger safety technician will make sure your seat is properly installed and will teach you how to do it yourself in the future.
To schedule an appointment, you can either go to http://www.opkansas.org/City-Government/Child-Passenger-Seat-Safety or call 913-327-5677 ext. 6419.
