By CASEY CURLIN Messenger Intern The South Fulton Police Department is inviting drivers to learn how to properly install child safety seats. Capt. David Lamb and Patrolman Rodney Mitchell will be conducting a community checkpoint on July 26 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. behind the South Fulton Police Department, which is located in the South Fulton Municipal Complex. They will instruct drivers on properly installing high-back booster seats, belt position booster seats, convertible car seats and auto booster seats. They will show participants the appropriate method for installing safety seats and will then allow the drivers to practice themselves. “We will also give people a new seat if we feel their seat is unsafe,” Lamb said. Lamb and Mitchell have been certified by the Child Passenger Safety Program and the checkpoint is sponsored by the Governor’s Highway Safety Office. Casey Curlin, a Fulton native, is a communications major at the University of Tennssee at Martin. Published in The Messenger 7.7.08
