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. Today, the Sikeston Department of Public Safety announced they are joining with other law enforcement agencies September 17-23 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. Booster seat use reduces the risk of serious injury by 45 percent for children aged 4-8 years when compared with seat belt use alone.
