11 from 4 to 7 p.m., parents can stop by the Grand Blanc Fire Department, located at 117 High St.in Grand Blanc, for a auto seat safety check.

The event will begin at 2 p.m. outside the City-County Building at 1500 Chapline St. Protect your children by using size appropriate auto seats or seatbelts for older children.

Officers will be on hand to inspect auto seats and ensure proper installation.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says a child's safety seat is improperly installed almost 60 percent of the time.

Recognizing that common car-seat mistakes can have deadly consequences, the Illinois Department of Transportation is partnering with AAA and child safety advocates this week during National Child Passenger Safety Week to educate motorists on what to do- and what to avoid- to keep young passengers safe. A limited number of new vehicle seats will be available if needed.

Kaitlyn Scott of Wheeling, mother of 9-month-old Kaeghan Tustin, said she is pleased the police department is looking out for local families.

"Statistics show that properly installed child safety seats can reduce the risk of infant fatalities by as much as 71 percent, 54 percent for toddlers and 45 percent among children ages 4 to 8", said Takamura.
