Lawrence County Sheriff's Office Will Crack Down on Child Restraint Violations

 

Missouri Law Requires Children under Eight to Be Buckled Up

 

Lawrence County, Missouri – Missouri law requires all children under the age of

eight to be in an appropriate child safety seat or booster seat unless they are 80 lbs or 4’9”

tall.

 

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office announced today they are joining with law enforcement

September 13-19 for an aggressive Child Passenger Safety Week Law Enforcement

Campaign to crack down on Missouri’s child safety seat law violators and to reduce

highway fatalities and injuries to children.

 

Car crashes are the number one killer of kids. Nearly 73 percent of all child restraints are not used correctly. Is your child safe?

 

Sheriff DeLay said regular child safety seat and safety belt use is the single

most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes.
