This is National Child Passenger Safety Week and Secretary of State Jesse White is reminding families about a new car seat law taking effect in January. Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13, so it’s important to follow the latest safety recommendations. That includes this new law says Secretary White.
All kids must be in a proper car or booster seat up until age 8 and rear facing seat should never be used in front of an active airbag. Parents are urged to keep children under 13 in the back seat where they are the safest.
