Seat inspections to be held Saturday
Free child car seat and booster seat inspections will be done from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot of Maui Marketplace on Dairy Road in Kahului.
Those interested in having child car seats checked to see whether they're properly installed should show up with the child, car seat or booster seat and car. An inspection takes a minimum of 30 minutes for each seat.
The inspections are done on a first-come, first-served basis.
The inspection Saturday follows one last month where most of the 25 car seats checked had problems.
Under state law, child car seats are required for children under age 4. Children from ages 4 to 7 are required to be restrained in either car seats or booster seats while riding in vehicles.
Information about upcoming child car seat inspections is available on Facebook by looking up Maui County Child Passenger Safety at www.facebook.com/mauichildpassengersafety.
