Unsafe Car Seats Replaced at Legislator Rath, EduKids' Car Seat Safety Check

More than 20 families took advantage of a free car seat safety check held Saturday at EduKids’ new center on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst. Co-Sponsored by Erie County Legislator Edward A. Rath III, R-Amherst, the Erie County Sheriff’s Office, and EduKids Early Childhood Centers, the event included the inspection and installment of more than 20 car seats; replacement of five unsafe/outdated seats; and distribution of 12 Operation Safe Child identification cards.

“This was a great event. Many families took the time to have their seats inspected and learned how to properly install them. That small action could spare their child serious injury in the event of an accident,” Legislator Rath said. “I was amazed to learn that nearly 90 percent of seats are not properly installed. A special thank you to the Erie County Sheriff’s Office, Amherst Police Department and the New York State Troopers for volunteering their time for this extremely important community event.”
