CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY RESTRAINING SYSTEM!

Traffic Stop Tuesday Postings are presented by the McPherson Police Department

This Tuesday they are talking about ‘CHILD SAFETY RESTRAINTS’.

In this week’s TRAFFIC STOP TUESDAY, we will discuss CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY RESTRAINING SYSTEMS!

Have you every wondered which specific child safety restraint system would best protect your son or daughter, or when to upgrade your existing child safety restraint system?

Today, we will help you answer those questions.

According to Standard Traffic Ordinance (182) Child Passenger Safety Restraining System:

Every driver who transports a child under the age of 14 years in a passenger car or an autocycle on a highway shall provide for the protection of such child by properly using:

  1. For a child under the age of four years an appropriate child passenger safety restraining system that meets or exceeds the standards and specifications contained in federal motor vehicle safety standard # 213;
  2. For a child four years of age, but under the age of eight years and who weighs less than 80 pounds or is less than four-feet, nine-inches in height, an appropriate child passenger safety restraining system that meets or exceeds the standards and specifications contained in federal motor vehicle safety standard # 213;
  3. For a child eight years of age but under the age of 14 years or who weighs more than 80 pounds or I smore than four-feet, nine-inches in height, a safety belt manufactured in compliance with federal motor vehicle safety standard # 208.

This Standard Ordinance is very brief, for more specific information please refer to the ‘Give Your Child a BOOST’ photo.

We hope this information helps you keep your children safer the next time you are picking out a safety restraint system.

The standards and specification meet or exceed requirement contained in Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard # 213. For more information on Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard # 213 go to – https://www.govinfo.gove/content/pkg/CFR-2011-title49-vol6/pdf/CFR-2011-title49-vol6-sec571-213.pdf.
