How safe is your child when riding in the car?
What does the law require in terms of child passenger safety and what should you do to keep your child safe? An expert from the MN Department of Public Safety provides information you won’t want to miss!
Car crashes are the leading cause of death and injury for children under the age of 14. But there are important steps we parents can take to keep our children as safe as possible and these often go above and beyond what’s required by law. Heather Darby from the Minnesota Department of Public Safety – Office of Traffic Safety joins Marti and Erin to shed light on requirements and best practices for determining when a child should move from an infant seat to a car seat to a booster seat to only a seat belt. As Heather advises, we never want to compromise our child’s safety, so when you hear complaining about using a car seat, remind your child that even NASCAR drivers use a five-point harness!
