Ashland, Ky. - Are your children adequately protected in your car or truck? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 90 percent of child safety seats are installed incorrectly.
Parents, grandparents, caregivers and others can learn about new Ohio laws regulating children’s car seats and have their equipment checked for compliance at King’s Daughters child passenger safety seat check May 1 at King’s Daughters Medical Specialties – Proctorville, 6276 State Route 107.

“In Ohio, children less than four years old or less than 40 pounds must use a safety seat, and booster seats are required for children less than 8 years old, unless they are at least 4 feet 9 inches tall,” Rene Clay, Community Relations specialist, said. “Each age group needs a different type of seat, and each seat must be properly installed to protect the child who uses it. KDMC is ready to assist in making sure all child safety seats offer the best protection possible in case of an accident.”
