Parents Break Seat Belt Rules

Posted:
 DECATUR-We all know that buckling up is what you're supposed to do, but a new survey shows one in four parents do not make their kids buckle up every time they're in the car.     
    Safe Kids Worldwide surveyed a thousand parents of children between the ages of 4 and 10.
    More than 60-percent of parents say they've seen other moms and dads bending the rules either not making their kids use a seat belt or letting them sit in the front seat.
    Safety experts remind parents that kids need to be in car seats or booster seats until they can fit well in a seat belt.
     Their backs and bottoms should be against the seat, and their knees should bend easily over the front part of the car seat.
     Car crashes are the number one killer of kids ages one to 13.  To see other recommendations, and a list of car seat safety checks, check out our website under sitewatch.
