Child Passenger Safety - It's More Than Just a Law

For more information, contact MoDOT Communications at (573) 751-3322.

JEFFERSON CITY - National Child Passenger Safety Week is Sept. 13-19. The Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety wants to ensure all caregivers of young children know the importance of buckling children in an appropriate child restraint. Motorists can also expect increased enforcement of Missouri's child seat safety laws during this campaign.

In 2014, seventeen children less than eight years of age were killed and 86 suffered serious injuries as occupants in motor vehicle crashes in Missouri. Thirty-one percent of the children killed were not restrained in a car seat or safety belt.
