Free child safety check event at Splash Kingdom

On Saturday, May 3, the Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force along with Louisiana State Police and Caddo Sheriff’s Office will provide free child passenger safety seat checks at Splash Kingdom Water Park in Shreveport. These checks will be conducted by child passenger safety technicians who will provide hands-on child safety seat inspections and answer questions at no charge.

The event will take place at Splash Kingdom Waterpark, located at 7670 W. 70th St. in Shreveport from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.

It is estimated that at least three out of four child restraint systems are being misused. This child passenger safety check event is a great opportunity for caregivers to ensure their child is in an age and weight appropriate child restraint and to have that child restraint checked and/or installed free of charge.

Child safety seats and booster seats save lives. They offer the best protection for children in the event of a crash.

During the past 30 years, approximately 9,000 lives have been saved by the use of child restraints according to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It is important that caregivers ensure children are properly restrained in an appropriate child safety seat, booster seat, or seat belt — every trip, every time.
