Child Passenger Safety Week starts Sunday, and is a time when health and safety officials remind moms and dads of the importance of protecting their most precious cargo in the car. Dana Eichelberger, a Health Educator and Child Passenger Seat Safety Technician for the Mansfield-Ontario-Richland County Health Department, says the law requires children ride in a rear-facing car seat until the age of one, but at least two years is recommended. She says children must ride in a car seat until they're eight years old or four-feet, nine-inches tall. Parents also must be careful about which car seat they buy, so it fits their child and their car. The Health Department participates in a state program called "Ohio Buckles Buckeyes", which provides funding to give free child car seats to income-eligible parents. It also provides instruction on the proper installation and use of car seats.
