State Police to Offer Child Safety Seat Inspections Across PA

Troopers Join National ‘Click It or Ticket’ Campaign

Harrisburg – Pennsylvania State Police will offer free child safety seat inspections statewide in conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s “Click It or Ticket” campaign from Nov. 15-27, Commissioner Frank E. Pawlowski announced today.

Pawlowski said troopers conducting inspections will teach parents how to correctly install and use safety seats. Information about inspection locations is available by calling any state police station or by visiting the “News and Media” link at www.psp.state.pa.us.

During the campaign period, troopers also will conduct traffic safety checkpoints to educate the public about traffic laws and will focus traffic law enforcement efforts in areas with traditionally high numbers of crashes.

“I’m encouraging our troopers to adopt a zero-tolerance policy toward violations of the state’s seat belt and child passenger restraint laws during this campaign period,” Pawlowski said. “However, our goal is not to issue citations. Our goal is to encourage drivers to make sure that all passengers are properly restrained whenever they travel.”
