The Weyburn Police Service is getting ready to host a car seat clinic early next month.
“We recognize that car seats can sometimes be intimidating, and we all want to make sure our kids are safe when we drive, so we’re just here to educate and make sure that our car seats are installed properly,” explained Constable Preston Roy.
The clinic is scheduled to be held on October 2nd, at the Weyburn Police Station. Those who are interested in making an appointment can call the Weyburn Police Service at (306) 842-3250. Drop-ins are welcome, but Cst. Roy added that by making an appointment, it can help to avoid any wait times on the day of the clinic.
Everyone who comes to the clinic for a car seat inspection and help with the installation will also have their name entered into a draw for a combination car seat/stroller.
In Saskatchewan, the ticket for having a child under the age of seven who isn’t in a suitable car seat for their age and weight is $175. The driver will also lose three points under the Safe Driver Recognition Program.
