Event Helps Parents Buckle Kids Up

Multiple organizations hosted a free hands-on child safety seat inspection in the Kohl's parking lot Saturday morning. This as part of a larger effort to make sure parents have their kids buckled in right before hitting the road.

Tex-DOT is launching the "Buckle Them Right" campaign as Child Passenger Safety Week is set to begin Sunday.

Inspections like this will be held in multiple locations throughout the state. Certified technicians were on hand Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon, helping parents learn how to properly use safety seats.

As of last year all children younger than eight years old and less than 4'9" tall are required to ride in a safety or booster seat. Failure to do so could result in a $25 fine for the first offense and $250 for the second.
