Did you know road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death among young people?

In fact, 500 children die on the world's roads every day - one child every three minutes.

Safe Kids Adams County hopes to curb those numbers in the Tri-States by offering a free Buckle Up event Friday, May 12th.

The event is at Quincy's Central Fire Station at 906 Vermont Street, from 4:00 to 6:00pm.

The event will take place at the Central Fire Station at 9th and Vermont in Quincy from 4 - 6 p.m.

Eveyone is welcome to stop by and have their car seats inspected to make sure everything is safe and up to code.

Officials will also be teaching parents how to use and install child restraints to make sure your kids are safe on every ride.
