Sheriff Warns of Fake Child Car Seats:


Steuben County Sheriff Jim Allard is urging those with infants and small children to be aware of the growing trend of “knock-off” car seat sales.  Typically sold from online merchants, the car seats are often made of flimsy plastic, and often feature plastic buckles, instead of metal ones, as well as missing parts, and the bogus seats do not provide registration cards or owner’s manuals, according to national reports.  Residents are reminded that the Sheriff’s Department conducts regular child car seat safety checks, and the next is set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at the 200th Steuben County Fair.  Income-eligible families in Steuben may apply for child car seats for newborns, infants, and toddlers through the sheriff’s “Play IT Safe” project.  More information is available by calling (607) 622-3911, or online at https://www.steubencony.org/Files/Documents/publichealth/car_seat_application_2019_fillable.pdf
