The start of the school year is the start of a daily commute for both parents and their children. Keeping your children safe as they head back to school is a top priority for the California Highway Patrol (CHP).
The Woodland Area office of the CHP will be holding a FREE child safety seat inspection event on September 22, 2012. A new California law effective January 1, 2012, extends the length of time a child must use a child passenger restraint or safety seat by two additional years while riding in a motor vehicle. The new law means child passengers must ride in either a car seat or booster seat until the age of eight or until they are 4 feet 9 inches tall.
