Family Safety Day won’t be held this year in Londonderry
Currently, the state’s car seat requirement applies to children 55 inches or shorter.
In previous years, the event has featured local vendors, food and a variety of fun and educational activities emphasizing the many ways children and families can stay safe.
Free monthly car seat checks are already a regular part of the Londonderry Child Passenger Safety Program, though in recent months attendance has steadily decreased.
According to statistics provided by the New Hampshire Child Passenger Safety Program, over 90 percent of all car seats installations need correction.
Curro said he’s hoping to spread the word to area families and have his team of certified technicians check as many car seats as possible for National Seat Check Saturday.
Information on the new legislation will also be made available for participants, and no appointment is necessary.
