The Governor's Office of Highway Safety is sponsoring several caravan stops around Central Georgia this week.
Harris Blackwood, Dir. of the Highway Safety office told 13WMAZ that there is a real need in the Macon area to educate parents and motorists in keeping children safe.
"You would not believe the number of parents that install their child's car seat or booster seat improperly," Blackwood said.
Members promoting the effort will stop Tuesday at the Agape Way Daycare in Byron as part of the 3-day safety caravan. Representatives from the National Highway Traffic Safety Adminstration are on site to see the inspection and demonstration.
On Wednesday, Blackwood said the group will set-up at Northway Church, 5915 Zebulon Road, in Macon. The free car seat and child passenger safety check starts at 1:30 and will conclude at 3:30 Wednesday afternoon.
