New program offered to teach parents about child restraint in vehicules

From the Asheville Citizen-Times:

Advocates of a new program in Buncombe and Henderson counties hope to clear up any confusion and bring attention to the safety of children. Drivers who are cited for child restraint violations will have the opportunity to learn how to properly install and use their car seats or seat belt by making an appointment at designated locations.

“This is an excellent educational opportunity to further spread the message about the importance of the proper installation of car seats and seat belt usage for children,” said Maj. Frank Stout of the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office. “There will be no excuse for the parent to not properly restrain a child after this class.”
