New Kansas Booster Seat Law
When it comes to the well being of your child, nothing should be
left to chance, especially in a motor vehicle.
Nearly 80% of child safety seats are incorrectly installed,
leading to thousands of preventable injuries each year. The best
seat for your child is one that fits the child and fits the car,
and one that the child rides in each and every time.
To be safe, everyone should ride properly restrained
every time they travel. All children 12
and under should ride in the back seat and
NEVER in front of an air bag. Learn more about Child Passenger Safety Guidelines.
All new cars have air bags for front-seat passengers and many
cars also have side air bags.
When used with lap/shoulder belts, air bags work very well to
protect older children and adults who ride facing forward in the
front seat of the car.
Air bags are a hazard to children 12 years and younger, and
especially infants in rear-facing child safety seats. Learn more
about Air Bag Safety with Kids.
