(WENY) - An opportunity for parents to get their kids' car seat checked out is coming up this weekend.

The New York Governor's Traffic Safety Committee is reminding parents in Tompkins and Steuben Counties that free car seat checks are available Saturday, April 15th in Ithaca and Addison.

In Ithaca, parents can stop by East Palm Road anywhere from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. 

In Addison, parents can stop by Front Street in Addison anywhere from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The events are part of a year-round safety initiative in which state and local law enforcement agencies offer free car seat inspections.
