Did you know that an old or broken safety seat could be putting a child in danger?
Drive Safe Hampton Roads, a non-profit organization whose mission is to inform and educate the public on traffic safety issues, announced that it will conduct the 27th Annual, Old, Used, Borrowed and Abused Child Safety Seat Round-Up during the month of February. The event seeks to “round-up” and recycle safety seats that are 8 years old or older, have missing parts, have been recalled by the manufacturer, or are no longer crashworthy. The goal is to remove potentially dangerous safety seats from the public and help keep our children safe when travelling.
The organization has partnered with Walmart, AAA Tidewater Virginia, DMV: Virginia Highway Safety Office, Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters, Boomerang Recovery, WVEC Channel 13,
West Service Center, Waste Industries, and Hoffman Beverage to provide “round-up” locations each weekend in February and offer a $5 reward for each seat recycled, limit two per person.
