BRIEFLY KIDS' CAR SEATS GO TO POOR FAMILIES.

Los Angeles City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, joined by police and Highway Patrol officers, helped give 50 car seats to low-income families in the San Fernando Valley on Saturday.

Keyes Motors donated 200 car seats, and there will be future giveaways, officials said.

In conjunction with the Valley Community Clinic, Greuel and the law enforcement officials helped give the seats to parents then showed them how they should be installed in their cars in the clinic's parking lot at 6801 Coldwater Canyon.

``Ninety percent of car seats are not properly installed,'' said Greuel, who got a surprise when she asked police to inspect her car seat and found out it wasn't properly installed.

``Every time I see parents with a car seats, I tell them to have them inspected,'' Greuel said. ``The LAPD and CHP are experts.''

People may call Greuel's office at (818) 755-7676 for information about future car seat events in Greuel's district.
