Child restraints

More than 1,000 children 12 and younger in passenger vehicles die in crashes every year, and more than 100,000 are injured. Parents can reduce the risk to their kids by properly securing them in the back seat of their vehicle (via Insurance Institute for Highway Safety).

The Meridian Township Police Department provides a child restraint inspection/installation free of cost for residents.  Contact Sergeant Don Lound or Officer Kristi Lysik at (517) 853-4800 to schedule an appointment.  Here is a short video by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety that may be helpful as well:
