From Monday, May 31 to Saturday, June 5, York Region Health Services will be conducting a child passenger safety campaign. This campaign will focus on the dangers of using seat belts when transporting young children. Children aged 5 to 9 have the highest rate of injury in motor vehicle crashes because most are using seat belts rather than a safety booster seat.
Public health nurses will be available throughout the week at the following locations to answer questions on car seat and booster seat safety:
Monday, May 31
Wednesday, June 2 The Bay, Hillcrest Mall
Thursday, June 3 Sears, Promenade Shopping Center
Friday, June 4 The Bay, Markville Mall
5000 Hwy #7 East,
A booster seat fitting clinic will also be available at the following location:
Saturday, June 5 Booster Seat Fitting Clinic
