State police will conduct free inspections of child safety seats around central Pennsylvania as part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's "Click it or Ticket" program.

The program's goal is to increase proper seat belt and child safety seat usage.

Pennsylvania's seat belt usage compliance rate is estimated about 84 percent, and the goal is to increase it by 4 percentage points by the end of the year, according to Trooper Adam Reed, a state police spokesman.

Troopers will install child seats and make sure those already installed were done properly, Reed said.

Two child safety seat clinics will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. at the state police barracks just off the Loganville exit of Interstate 83.

The first will be held Tuesday, Nov. 20; the second is set for Thursday, Nov. 29, Reed said.
