MSHP Troopers Join in Safety Seat Week Effort

Missouri State troopers are concentrating their efforts on child seat safety this week. As we reported earlier in the weeks, this is National Child Passenger Safety Week, an effort to remind adults who are transporting children to make sure that they are doing so correctly. Missouri troopers are making special efforts this week to watch for children that aren’t strapped in correctly. They expect to issue more tickets this week for drivers who don’t properly protect their children than in a normal week. Last year in Missouri there were eight child deaths that could have been avoided if the children were seated in the cars properly.
