The focus of Child Passenger Safety Week is to raise awareness and encourage all parents and caregivers to ensure their children are riding in appropriate car seats based on age and size. Proper installation is also key to making sure the seats are effective in protecting children.

In addition to enforcement efforts the police department will be conducting a FREE child safety seat inspection on September 30, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the parking lot across from the Arlington Heights Village Hall located at 33 S. Arlington Heights Road, Arlington Heights, Il 60005.

The campaign is funded by federal traffic safety funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and administered through the Illinois Department of Transportation.
