Hollywood Police Department offers free car seat inspections


The Hollywood Police Department is encouraging drivers with children to visit the Hollywood Police Department to have a certified officer inspect their car seat for a proper installation free of charge.

Car crashes are a leading killer of children aged one to 13 years old. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that car seats reduce the risk of infants under the age of one from being killed in cars by 71 percent and young children ages one to four by 54 percent.

To make an appointment call 954-921-4371. Appointments are available year round Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Police Headquarters at 3250 Hollywood Boulevard.

To keep child passengers as safe as possible, drivers should properly restrain children younger than 13 years old in a back seat.
