[ARCHIVED] Lombard Police Offer Child Safety Seat Inspections Saturday, Sept. 17

The Lombard Police Department will be offering free car seat inspections and education to parents and caregivers on Saturday, September 17 at the Lombard Park District's Touch-A-Truck event from 8 a.m. to noon. Lombard Officers, certified as Passenger Safety Technicians, will help parents ensure child car seats are installed correctly in their vehicles. The service is offered free of charge.

"We want to do everything possible to keep children safe," said Traffic Safety Unit Officer Dan Herrera. "So we're collaborating with our partners at the Lombard Park District at this fun, family-friendly Touch-A-Truck event where we hope to reach and assist even more local families." 

In Illinois, children must be restrained in an appropriate car or booster seat until age eight and in a rear-facing seat until age 2. NHTSA recommends that children stay restrained in their car seats until they outgrow the height and weight limit set by the seat's manufacturer. This often means keeping children in rear-facing seats beyond age two and boosters far beyond age eight.

The Touch-A-Truck event will be hosted by the Lombard Park District on September 17, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Lombard Common Park. Children can explore Lombard police cars, fire trucks, dump trucks, and much more. For event details, visit www.lombardparks.com/touch-a-truck.

For questions about car seat safety inspections, please contact the Lombard Police Department at (630) 873-4400.
