(KTVE/KARD) — The Louisiana State Police are offering free car seat checks across the state.
They say they want to make sure your car seats are installed properly. According to the State Police they see kids hurt or killed in car accidents all across the state.
Police say car seats significantly reduce the risk of injury and death when installed properly and the child is harnessed appropriately.
