On Saturday, October 29th a car seat safety check was hosted by the Taylorville Police Department, the Taylorville Fire Department and the Taylorville Kiwanis Club. Nearly two dozen vehicles drove through the safety check allowing parents to have their safety seat inspected for proper installation, the proper type of safety seat is being used, the safety seat meets the standards and it has not reached it expiration date.
During the safety check many adjustments had to be made and one safety seat had to be taken out of service since it had reached it expiration date. The Taylorville Kiwanis Club had provided a couple of new safety seats should one need to be replaced.
Deputy Chief Brian Hile thanked Kristine Lecocq of the Taylorville Kiwanis Club for her continued support and efforts towards this event.
