Oklahoma has just passed a law that strengthens rules on child safety seats. Now, children under the age of 2 must be in a rear-facing safety seat. Children between 4 and 8 must also be in an appropriate safety seat. Car crashes continue to be the leading cause of death of young children in most states.
Oklahoma also joined other states in banning texting and driving. With this law, a police officer can stop and cite a driver solely based on the fact that the driver was texting and driving. Distracted driving has significantly increased the number and severity of car accidents over the last 10 years.
