WHO:             Leopold Law & Safe Kids PBC Host Child Passenger Safety Drive

WHAT:           Child safety event to provide families with resources and education to help keep children safe in and around vehicles in honor of National Seat Check Saturday and Child Passenger Safety Week.

WHEN:           Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

WHERE:         Community Partners, 2001 West Blue Heron Blvd, Riviera Beach, FL  33404.

Report funded by General Motors Foundation, “Buckle Up: Every Ride, Every Time,” finds that 1 in 4 parents are not always taking the time to ensure their children are safely secured in vehicles.

Leopold Law, P.A., in partnership with Safe Kids Palm Beach County and Bridges at Riviera Beach, will be offering free booster seats to children who have outgrown their child safety seats. 

Demonstrations will be set up to promote child safety issues including hyperthermia and drive way back-over accidents.  By raising awareness within the community, parents will be equipped with the resources and knowledge to better protect their children from Motor Vehicle Accidents, the #1 killer of children in America.

This community event is critical as the legislature once again prepares to convene and review newly proposed child safety legislation.
