Greene County deputies to participate in child passenger safety enforcement campaign
GREENE COUNTY, Mo. (KY3) - Deputies from the Greene County Sheriff’s Office are participating in a week-long child passenger safety enforcement campaign starting Sunday.
The campaign runs from Sunday, September 20 to Saturday, September 26.
It focuses on drivers who may not have their children properly buckled or in the correct booster seats, according to the sheriff’s office.
According to the Missouri Department of Transportation, these rules are a part of Missouri’s Child Restraint Law regarding booster seats:
- Children less than 4 years old or less than 40 pounds must be in an appropriate child safety seat.
- Children ages 4 through 7 who weigh at least 40 pounds must be in an appropriate child safety seat or booster seat unless they are 80 pounds or 4′9″ tall.
- Children 8 and over or weighing at least 80 pounds or at least 4′9″ tall are required to be secured by a safety belt or buckled into an appropriate booster seat.
In previous weeks, Greene County deputies participated in saturation campaigns to crack down on impaired driving.
