“If you have a little one on the way, are unsure if your seat is installed correctly, or you just want some advice, then this is the place to be!”states a CHP Enforcement Officer, who recently became a father again.   




Saturday August 29th beginning at 9:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M., the California Highway Patrol will be co-hosting with the Big Bear Mom & Dad Project a Child Safety Seat Event at The Convention Center at the Big Bear Lake, located at Big Bear Boulevard and Division Road.  

At the Saturday morning event, there will be several ‘fitting stations’ with nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians.  The trained personnel will evaluate child safety seats and give recommendations, as well as check for recalls.  If a car seat is expired, recalled, or defective, and parents meet certain requirements, a grant funded seat may be awarded to the family.  These seats are made possible by a grant from the Office of Traffic Safety (OTS).

The Child Safety Seat Event is not just for parents with children, but also for parents–to-be. 

When children under age 8 years old, are not properly secured in a vehicle, the parent or driver could receive a traffic citation from law enforcement, in addition to ‘one point’ on their driving record.   The Convention Center at the Big Bear Lake street address is 42900 Big Bear Boulevard.
