Did you know that 18 of every 25 children under the age of eight who are killed in crashes are not properly restrained?
California's new child passenger safety seat law went into effect in January -- yet clearly, some parents aren't following it.
To help, the California Highway Patrol is observing National Child Passenger Safety Week by conducting child safety seat events throughout the state.
"Children depend on adults to keep them safe. For this reason, we are committed to providing parents in communities throughout the state with this free service to help ensure their child's safety on the road," said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow.
The 2012 law requires children to ride in the back seat of a vehicle, either in a car seat or booster seat, until the age of eight, or until they are 4 feet 9 inches tall.
You can make an appointment through September 22 at any local CHP area office so a child safety seat technician can complete a free car seat inspection.
