New laws take effect on 01 July 2007

Filed under: Announcements,Community — Jeff Brown @ 11:22

The Sterling Volunteer Fire Company would like to remind citizens of two new laws that take effect on 01 July 2007:

The first mandates that children 8 years old and under must be properly secured in a restraint device. Additionally rear facing child restraints must be places in the back seat, or in the front seat with airbags deactivated for vehicles without a rear seat.

If you need help installing a car seat, please contact us for an appointment. Appointments are taken between 6am and 6pm, Monday through Friday, and are subject to the availability of personnel. In Sterling Park call 703-430-7010, and in Cascades call 703-430-4013.

A second law prohibits drivers under the age of 18 from operating cell phones or other wireless telecommunication devices while operating a motor vehicle.

See the press release from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office here.

We at the Sterling Volunteer Fire Company would like to express our most sincere condolences to the City of Charleston, SC Fire Department and the families and friends of the nine firefighters who gave their lives in the line of duty.
