Child Safety Seat Inspections
The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department takes the safety of your greatest asset, your child, very seriously. The Traffic Section has several officers trained as National Child Passenger Safety Seat Technicians.
These officers are available to assist the public in the proper installation of their child protective restraint systems inside their vehicles. They will also assist in assuring you have selected the correct seat based on age, weight and height for your child and that your child is secured correctly in the seat.
To make an appointment with a Child Passenger Seat Specialist please contact the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department’s Traffic Office at 615-862-7738, Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. or fill out the child safety seat inspection request form.
Driver Safety and Share the Road Class
During 2014, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department instituted a free young adult driver awareness class. This class educates drivers over the age of 18 years old on how to avoid driving distractions, such as technology, and passengers. Impaired driving is also discussed with the focus being on alcohol and drugs use alone, or the combination of both. This class is usually held at local universities as part of a freshman orientation and is open to all that would like to attend.
Teen Driver Safety Program
The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department began a free teenage driver safety program during 2011. The program focuses on impaired driving, distracted driving, and general traffic safety. The 4 hour class is held on select Saturdays throughout the year and is offered to high school teens that reside in any county.
Preregistration is required and can be completed for the specific date you would like your teen to attend.
