Moreno Valley Police Department to Conduct
Car Seat Education & Fit Station

The Moreno Valley Police Traffic Division has partnered with Riverside County Injury Prevention to conduct six car seat fit stations this year, to provide education about, and encourage proper car seat usage. These programs will be conducted in various locations in the City of Moreno Valley through September 2013.

The upcoming Car Seat Education and Fitting Station will be conducted at Visterra Credit Union (23450 Cactus Ave.) on April 13, 2013 starting at 9:00 a.m. Parents must schedule an appointment to have their car seat inspected at this event. To schedule an appointment, contact C.S.O. II Laura Beckner at 486-6969.

Far too many children continue to be at risk while traveling in vehicles without proper protection. These Car Seat Education and Fitting Stations will help educate parents on the importance of proper car sear installation and use. Certified car seat technicians will be available to inspect car seats free of charge. Car seats which do not meet the Federal Motor Safety Standard may be replaced.

These events are sponsored by Riverside County Injury Prevention through funds provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
