Illinois State Police Giving Out Free Booster Seats

STATELINE (WIFR) -- In many cases booster seats can keep our kids safe during accidents, and now we have the chance to get a booster seat for free.

Illinois State Police are giving out 42 child safety seats. They're paid for through a grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation.

Studies show the restraints reduce the risk for serious injury by 45 percent for kids ages four to eight.

Families interested in attending an educational program to learn more about how booster seats protect children may contact Trooper Michelle Kistulinec (630) 241-6800 for more information. Attendees may be eligible to receive a new booster seat for their child.
