Weekend child seat check scheduled at Panera Bread in Lexington

Lexington, SC – The Lexington Police Department continues their commitment to promote the practice of always using “The Right Seat” by partnering with Panera Bread, located at 5416 Sunset Blvd. in Lexington, for a free child seat check event that is planned for Saturday, May 18, 2019.

Beginning at 11:00 a.m. and ending at 1:00 p.m., certified CPS Technicians will be available to check to make sure car seats are installed correctly and instruct parents on the best passenger seat types for their child’s age and weight range. CPS Technicians will also make sure a car seat has not been recalled or is in need of replacement. A child’s safety while riding within a vehicle is always important and making sure that their car seat is installed correctly is easy for a CPS Technician to check and teach the proper fit.

Those who have their car seat checked will receive a coupon for a free Panera Bread pastry to be used during their next visit.

Chief Terrence Green said, “The numbers show that at least eight out of every ten child seats checked by technicians have issues in some way. An improperly installed child seat could jeopardize the safety of a child during a collision and this highlights the need for parents, grandparents, and guardians to take advantage of this free child seat check. Ten minutes of your time to have a car seat checked could make the all difference for that child’s safety.”

More information about “The Right Seat” can be found on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.
