Reminder From State Officials To Buckle Up Our Children
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Proper child safety seats can save your child’s life during an automobile
crash. Local fire departments and hospital in the St. Louis area want residents
to know they can help properly install child safety seats in vehicles.
If a parent or guardian needs help, there are many places available to
offer assistance. A medical professional at Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge
Hospital reminds parents that children are the safest riding in the back
seat of a vehicle and no child should ride in the front seat until at
least eight years of age. Missouri State law requires children who are
less than four years of age or weighing under 40 pounds to be secured
in a child safety seat that is age appropriate.
Two St. Louis toddlers were not in proper safety seats and were killed
this week in a tragic car accident. A 2-year-old and a 3-year-old were
both ejected from a vehicle during a crash in North County on Monday.
Missouri State officials are urging parents to make sure they are following
state laws and seeking help in the installment of these safety seats if
needed. Child safety seats save lives.
