Today, my home state of Missouri has a new law that goes into effect and concerns two things I care deeply about: kids and traffic safety. MO’s new law doesn’t just bump up the requirements for car seats and the kids that ride in them, but they’ve made a real statement with the new regulations. Now, children have to be practically in puberty before they’re allowed to ride in a car like an adult(okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration).
If you’re in the state and have kids, you probably already know this stuff. Either way, it’s a great example for other states to follow to help keep our little friends out of harm’s way.
