OKLAHOMA CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY
ISSUE: Oklahoma ranks 50th in the nation in protecting older children, ages 8-17, in vehicles as the only state without a law requiring children 8 and older to wear a seat belt when riding in the back seat. Right now, only those under 8 years old are protected.
SOLUTION: Contact your state representative and the governor, asking them to vote for a law that protects those 17 and younger in the back seat by wearing seat belts. (Exemptions for licensed agricultural vehicles will remain.)
