“Inspections will be completed by local certified car seat technicians and for every inspection done, the child will receive a take home bag with information, activity books and related items,” Safe Communities said in a media release.

According to SGI, in 2016, there were 91 children six years of age or younger injured and three killed while riding in a vehicle. Seven of those children were not restrained or were restrained improperly. In addition, 26 of those children were wearing a seatbelt that may have been inappropriate for them.

The clinic will take place in Humboldt on Eighth Avenue between 16th and 17th Streets on Friday, Sept. 13, between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
