Hallsville Police Department Cracking Down on Child Restraint Violations

Missouri Law Requires Children under Eight to Be Buckled Up

Hallsville – Missouri law requires all children under the age of eight to be in an appropriate child safey seat or booster seat unless they are 80 lbs or 4’9” tall.

The Hallsville Police Department announced today they are joining with law enforcement September 18-24 for an aggressive Child Passenger Safey 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?

Regular child safety seat and safety belt use is the single most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes.
