The Lombard Police Department is recognizing Child Passenger Safety Week by hosting a child safety seat check at the Lombard Police Department on Saturday, September 23, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Lombard Officers will check car seats for proper installation and advise parents, grandparents, and caregivers how to choose the right car seats and install them properly in their vehicles.

The event, part of Lombard’s participation in National Child Passenger Safety Week is free to the public. This event is one of 88 Illinois events sponsored by AAA, the Secretary of State, Illinois Department of Transportation and Village of Lombard. 


The updated recommendations emphasize how important it is to keep children in each restraint type for as long as possible before moving them to the next type.  For maximum child passenger safety, parents and caregivers should visit their local inspection station to ensure their child’s safety seat is used properly:


               Rear-Facing Seats: In the back seat from birth to the height and weight limit of the seat.  Recommended up to 2 years old, but at a minimum age of 1 year old and 20 pounds.


               Forward-Facing Seats: In the back seat when the child has reached the height or weight limit of the rear-facing seat to about age four and 40-65 pounds.


               Booster Seats: In the back seat from about age 4 to at least age 8 years old.


               Safety Belts: At 8 years old and older and taller than 4’9’’.


               All children younger than 13 should ride in the back seat.


              As of January 1, 2012, safety belt use is required in all seating positions.
