MN Child Car Seat Enforcement 24 Mar 14

A statewide seatbelt enforcement effort is underway, and as part of the “Click It Or Ticket” campaign, officials are reminding parents to double-check their kids car seats for proper installation. The Department of Public Safety’s Heather Darby says that three out of four child seats are not used correctly. She says that could mean something as simple as the seat not being installed in the vehicle tight enough or even not being installed at all. Minnesota law requires that all children under age eight and shorter than four-feet, nine-inches tall be fastened in a child safety or booster seat that meets federal safety standards. Children under age 13 should always ride in the back seat of a vehicle as well.
