When properly installed, child safety seats reduce the risk of death in a motor vehicle crash by 71% for infants and 54% for toddlers. Safety belts reduce the risk of death or serious injury in a motor vehicle crash by up to 50%.
Sgt. Smolinsky graduated from a week long course on the proper installment of all brands of child safety seats. According to the Governor's Highway Safety Bureau, 90% of all child car seats that are installed, are installed incorrectly.
Sgt. Smolinsky is available to assist parents with the proper installation of their car seats. However, Sgt. Smolinsky offers this service in addition to his normal duties as a patrol supervisor, so we ask that you please call in advance to make an appointment.
To schedule an appointment, call 508.668.1095.
