Lawmaker proposes updates to state child safety law

Posted under Personal injury

Wisconsin Representative Chris Taylor (Democrat of Madison) has filed a bill to update the state’s child safety seat law, which she claims could result in thousands of saved lives every year.

According to Taylor, the current child safety seat law does not follow the recommendations of doctors and transportation experts when it comes to proper safety standards. The current law specifies that children should be placed in a rear-facing seat whenever riding in automobiles until they turn one-year-old or weigh more than 20 pounds.

The measure also seeks to disallow children to sit in the front passenger seat until they are 13 years old. Under the current law, a five-year-old can already sit in the front passenger seat of a moving vehicle.
