Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children age 3 to 6 and 8 to 14. In 2007, 6,532 passenger vehicle occupants 14 and younger were involved in fatal crashes. That's why Elliot Whittier Insurance is urging all parents and caregivers to have their child car seats professionally checked. As part of National Child Passenger Safety Week, free inspections were performed at the Elliot Whittier Winthrop location on Saturday, September 19th.

"It's the responsibility of every parent and caregiver out there to make sure their children are safely restrained - every trip, every time," said Paul Roy, principal at Elliot Whittier. "We are urging everyone to get their child safety seats inspected. When it comes to the safety of a child, there is no room for mistakes."

The inspections were performed by Police Officer Steven Acone, who had undergone 40 hours of intensive instruction in order to receive the proper certification.   Officer Acone was assisted by Officer Ferruccio Romeo.

“ We held this event in May of this year and due to the overwhelming positive response, we are pleased to adopt this service once again to the Winthrop community in partnership with the Winthrop Police Department" said Elliot Whittier’s Paul Roy.
