Troopers and deputies from the Michigan State Police and Allegan County Sheriff’s Department will be conducting a car seat check on July 9, 2019 from 10:00 AM until 1:00 PM at the Gun Lake Tribal Public Safety garage. Representatives from Gun Lake Tribe and Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital will be assisting with the event. This event is free and open to the public for anyone who wishes to have a child’s car seat or booster seat checked or installed.
Car crashes are the leading cause of injury and death for children aged 3-14 years old according to the CDC. Correct car seat use can reduce injury to children 71%-82% compared to seat belt use alone.
The Gun Lake Tribal Public Safety garage is located at 2872 Mission Dr. Shelbyville, MI. Although an appointment is recommended walk-ins are welcome.
