Car Safety Seat Check

With the wide variety of child restraint systems, belt systems and passenger vehicles, correctly installing a child restraint system can be challenging. To help keep our children safe, the Bethlehem Police Department Traffic Safety Unit offers child passenger safety seat inspections.

Appointments are required and can be made by filling out this Car Safety Seat Check Request Form.

New York State Child Restraint Law
As of November 24, 2009, New York State law requires that all children ride in child restraint systems until their 8th birthday. Safety seats and child restraint systems must be certified according to Federal Motor Vehicles Safety Standard 213.
