The Illinois State Police and the Illinois Tollway are teaming up for family fun and safety across Illinois this summer.

K.I.S.S. isn't just a rock and roll band anymore... it's also stands for the Kids
Identification and Safety Seat events that will be held across Northern Illinois.

According to the Press Release from the Illinois Tollway, eleven events are scheduled for this summer.

At the K.I.S.S. events, Illinois State Police District 15 will be providing children ages 3 and up with free kids' ID cards. They will also help install and inspect child safety seats.

The child's fingerprints and photographs will be taken by specialized professionals and two personal identification cards will be provided. One to keep at home and one for parents/guardians/babysitters to carry.

Keep in mind, all information provided for the identification card will be deleted as soon as the cards are issued. The Illinois Tollway and Illinois State Police will NOT keep the information.

Along with identification cards and car seat inspections, there will also be other activities for kids.

There will be a demonstration of the importance of wearing a seat belt with the Illinois State Police's Roll 15 Rollover Simulator and a Convincer Crash Simulator.

There will be the Touch-a-Truck display of the Tollway H.E.L.P. truck, a snowplow and Police vehicles. Games, refreshments and more will be on hand.
