Why Car Seat Safety?

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone today announced the Suffolk County Traffic and Parking Violation Agency is partnering with the National Safety Council (NSC) to offer the 1-hour Car Seat Basics e-learning. This e-learning, helps parents learn how to properly use their child’s car seat.  The Car Seat Basics e-learning, developed through NSC’s work with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, helps parents learn how to properly transport their child from birth to pre-teen age. Parents have the option of completing the entire training or individual modules including an overview, rear-facing and forward-facing car seat use as well as booster seat and seat belt use.

“Making sure our children are properly restrained in their car seats is one of the most effective ways to keep them safe while on the road,” said Bellone. “This free course will not only save young lives, but it will also educate parents on how to keep their kids safe in the car, during all stages of life.”
