Free Car Seat Inspection



On Saturday, June 6, 2015, Meridian Township Police will hold a child safety seat inspection event.  Officers will inspect child safety seats for proper installation. Inspections will be done at the Meridian Township Police Department Public Safety Building, 5151 Marsh Road, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  There is no fee for the inspection.


The proper use of child safety seats is the most effective way to protect children involved in a motor vehicle crash – which is the leading cause of death for children ages 3-14 in the United States.   As high as 84 percent of child restraints show critical misuses. The most common forms of misuse are using the wrong seat for the child’s age and weight, loose safety belt attachment to the car seat and loose harness straps on the child. When installed and used correctly, child safety seats and safety belts can prevent injuries and save lives.
