Cottage Health is teaching parents and adult drivers the correct way to install a child car seat at a seminar on Wednesday, June 12, in Goleta.

The safety class will show attendees the proper way to keep their children safe while in the car by putting their seats in the right position and adjusting them to California standards.

State laws require children less than two years of age to be in a rear-facing safety seat, while children eight years and younger must be secured in a booster seat in the back seat.

About 80% of adult drivers improperly follow the rules or install the equipment wrong.

The session will be held at Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital, located at 351 S. Patterson Dr., from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
