Texas Department of Transportation will be hosting a free child safety seat check from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19 at 1365 North Main Street in Paris.

According to the National Highway Safety Administration it is estimated that roughly three of every four child safety seats are not used correctly or not used at all.

The Department of Motor Vehicles explains the current car seat laws:

Three Hopkins County bridges are scheduled to be replaced by authorization of the Texas Department of Transportation to Highway 19 Construction LLC. Bridges will be West Greenwood Creek at FM 900, Little Caney Creek at FM 69, and at CR 528-1 (HCR 4734) at a tributary of the Sulphur River.


TxDOT forces have been out since this morning preparing for the current winter weather across North Texas.  TxDOT will be working overnight to ensure Northeast Texas roads remain passable and safe.
