 Every year, hundreds of children are either killed or seriously injured in motor vehicle collisions.

Studies have shown child safety seats can reduce fatal injury by 72% for infants and by 54% for

toddlers, ages 1-4. The California Highway Patrol will be offering a free Child Passenger Safety

(CPS) Seat Check-up Event at The Mattel™ Toy Store in the city of Pomona on Saturday,

August 24th, from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the

California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The California Highway Patrol will have trained certified CPS technicians/officers inspecting

child seats and offering traffic safety information. The goal of this event will be to educate

parents on the proper installation and use of child passenger seats. Inspections will be done by

appointment only. To set up an appointment participants must contact the CHP Southern

Division office at (818) 240-8200.
