It’s the start of another school year and children are growing. Jane Fellman, of the Kenai Peninsula Safe Kids Coalition, recommends checking your child’s car seat.
Fellman: “Make sure that children are in the correct car seat for their age, their height, their weight and their development as well as make sure the seat is installed in their vehicles correctly.”
She also reminds parents to walk all the way around a vehicle before starting up, to make sure children are not standing in blind spots.
Fellman: “With school getting back into session here, drivers need to be very cautious about children being out as pedestrians, waiting for school buses and crossing intersections. So we’re just encouraging people to be really aware and extra cautious.”
