Child Passenger Safety

Car crashes remain the number one killer of children ages 3-14 in the United States.  Many of these deaths could be prevented if children are properly restrained in Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) approved car seats. Placing children in age- and size-appropriate restraint systems reduces serious and fatal injuries by more than half according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Kansas law requires all children 3 and younger be in a child restraint; children 4 through 7 who weigh less than 80 pounds and children 4 through 7 who are less than 57 inches tall must be in a child restraint or booster seat.  All children 8 through 13 years; children 4 through 7 years who weigh more than 80 pounds, and children 4 through 7 years who are taller than 57 inches must be restrained by seat belt.
