Los Angeles Police Department-South Traffic Division, California - NHTSA

The Los Angeles Police Department South Traffic Division has implemented a free Child Seat Safety Check up every week at Crenshaw Mall, 4125 S. Crenshaw Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90018. During a Child Seat Safety Check up, parents or caregivers can drive up with their children in their car seats and trained technicians inspect the installation of the car seats. The Check up includes inspection of the proper fit of the child in the seat, the proper installation of the seat in the vehicle, and a check of the seat for safety and recalls.

Residents are encouraged to call for appointment. Without an appointment, we may not be able to accommodate you or you may have and extended wait. Please call 213-485-7742.

It is the responsibility of every uniformed officer to enforce violations of the California Vehicle Code, educate citizens on the importance of traffic safety and make every effort to protect drivers on City streets. These efforts, combined with the participation and cooperation of the community will help ensure the safety of motorists throughout the City.

EDUCATION
Nationally, traffic collisions are the leading cause of death among children ages 5 to 14 and the results are staggering; more than 500 are killed and 95,000 are injured annually. Many of these deaths and injuries could have been prevented if the children were properly restrained in seat belts or child safety seats. When children outgrow forward-facing child safety seats, they need to be restrained in belt-positioning booster seats until they are big enough to fit properly in an adult seat belt.

Things to remember when transporting children or using child safety/booster seats in a vehicle:

All children ages 12 and under should sit in the back seat properly restrained. The rear seat is the safest place for children.
Never use pillows, books, or towels to boost the height of a child. They can slide around and increase the likelihood of injury.
Make sure everyone is buckled up correctly. Infants and very young children should be in child safety seats. Young children should be correctly buckled using a booster seat.

Read the instructions for the child safety or booster seat and your vehicle owner’s manual before installation. If the vehicle has only lap belts in the back seat, consider having shoulder belts installed by a dealer or repair facility. Most vehicle manufacturers offer retrofit shoulder belt kits for this purpose.

After installing a child safety or booster seat, do not forget to test for a snug and secure fit. Properly fitting lap and shoulder belts reduce the risk for belt-induced injuries, which can occur when lap or lap/shoulder belts are a small child’s only restraint.
Always fill out and mail the registration card that comes with the safety/booster seat so notifications can be made in case of a recall.
