"Save Me With a Seat Campaign" Encouraging Parents to Properly Buckle Up Their Children

Staff Report
NewsWest 9

Buckle up your kids, the right way. That's the message the Texas Department of Transportation and DPS Troopers are trying to spread.

The "Save Me With a Seat" campaign is encouraging parents to learn how to properly buckle up their children.

You may know that all kids under the age of eight are supposed to be strapped into a child's safety seat unless they're taller than 4'9" even if you're planning to drive just a short distance.

If you're caught without restraints that short trip can cost you up to $250.

Highway patrolmen are certified safety seat technicians.

So if you're not sure your child is properly secured, you can call their office and make an appointment to get checked out.
