With safety experts saying three out of four child car seats are installed incorrectly, local law enforcement and McMinnville Noon Exchange teamed up Tuesday to hold a child seat safety inspection.The free service was offered at the Children’s Advocacy Center parking lot on Sparta Street. Certified inspection officers from McMinnville Police Department and the Highway Patrol were on hand to inspect seats and give parents pointers on how to properly restrain their children. The event was held as part of Child Passenger Safety Week.“We want to make sure our children are safe and one of the first ways we can do that is to make sure they are properly restrained,” said Noon Exchange Club president Ashley Wright.
