Carbondale Police Department, Illinois

The City of Carbondale Police Department is a Permanent Child Passenger Safety Inspection Station, which is funded, in part, through an Illinois Department of Transportation Child Passenger Safety Grant. Department personnel trained as Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians are available to inspect child safety seats for correct installation and use and provide one on one instruction to educate parents and care givers about the basics of child safety seat installation and use. These services are provided free of charge and are available every Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., or by appointment, at the police department.

not securing the seat into the vehicle properly, facing the child forward too soon, improperly placed or adjusted harness straps, and using a seat that is not appropriately sized for the child. While not all of these errors may lead to injury in the event of a traffic crash, they increase the likelihood of an injury to the child. The City of Carbondale Police Department is committed to ensuring the children of our community are traveling as safely as possible and encourage all parents and care givers to have their child safety seats inspected by trained Department technicians.

Illinois Law currently requires each driver and passenger of a motor vehicle wear a properly adjusted and fastened seat safety belt. It also requires that whenever a person is transporting a child under the age of 8, the person is responsible for properly securing the child in an appropriate child restraint system, which includes a booster seat. Every person, when transporting a child between the ages of 8 and 16 is responsible for properly securing the child in a seat belt. For more information regarding the Illinois Child Passenger Protection Act please contact the City of Carbondale Police Department.
