Child Safety Seat inspections
Do You Transport a child under eight years of age in a Motor Vehicle?
The Pennsylvania Vehicle code requires that all children under eight years of age that are passengers in a “Passenger car, Class I Truck, Class II Truck, Classic Motor Vehicle, Antique Motor Vehicle or Motor Home” be properly restrained in an approved Child Safety Seat. Additionally the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration suggests that any child under 4’ 9” in height use a Child Safety Seat of appropriate specifications to ensure that the vehicle seat belt properly fits that child.
The Northwest Regional Police Department provides Child Safety Seat inspections and assistance with installations free of charge. If you have any questions regarding this issue or would like to schedule an inspection or need help with an installation please contact the Department’s Certified Child Passenger Safety Seat Technician, Officer Michael Bryant, at 367-3382 ext. 113. The Northwest Regional Police Department does not provide Child Safety Seats, but will be able to provide contact information to an agency that may be able to provide one if needed. Thank You for helping us to keep kids safe while riding in motor vehicles!
