Guam - Child passenger safety was the focus of a training held today by the Department of Public Works. Instructors from Hawaii, Korea, and Japan are on-island to teach the proper use of child safety seats as part of a 32-hour course.
Chuck Hirata is a former Maui policeman, and a visiting cps CPS instructor said, "One of the most common is the seatbelt is not tight enough. The harness is not snug enough. Sometimes one of the big mistakes is not using a child restraint at all and one of the big problems we see is people not using booster seats for older kids."
Participants came from various agencies including GPD, the Airport Police, the General Services Agency and the Office of Highway Safety.
