California Highway Patrol to Host Free Child-Seat Check at Passenger Safety Event

The Santa Barbara Area California Highway Patrol office has partnered with Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital to bring a Child Passenger Safety Seat Check-up event to the Goleta area.  

The event will be between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 21, 2015, and will be held across the street from Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital at the Cavaletto Medical Office, 334 South Patterson Avenue in Goleta.

Currently 4 out of every 5 child passenger safety seats have been installed or adjusted improperly. Is yours one of them?

Let our local health and safety professionals check your child passenger safety seat to ensure it is installed correctly. We’ll also check to ensure your seat has not been recalled for any reason.  

Together, we hope to provide valuable information, explain turn-around times and provide helpful tips to ensure your seat is as secure as possible. 

This community outreach program will be at no cost to the public. All those who have car seats are encouraged to come.  

The CHP will not issue citations at this event, so please encourage those who would benefit from this event to attend.

If you would like to make an appointment or need more information, feel free to contact CHP Officer Gutierrez at 805.967.1234.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

— Jonathan Gutierrez is the public information officer for the Santa Barbara Area California Highway Patrol.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
