Child Passenger Safety

Motor vehicle injuries are a leading cause of death for children, but many of these deaths can be prevented.

State law requires that children be in a child safety seat or otherwise properly restrained while riding in a motor vehicle. The child's age and weight are among the factors to consider. The Ohio Department of Health explains the law and provides resources to keep your family safe, including access to car seats for eligible families.
