More people talking about 'outdated' car seat law
GONZALES- More experts suggest a state law needs to be changed, so drivers have a clearer understanding of the proper way young children should be restrained in car seats.
A WBRZ News 2 Investigation found the law is outdated. Doctors recommend babies remain rear facing until they are two-years-old.
"We want parents to know [that the] Louisiana law is the minimum requirements to keep your children safe," Lexlee Overton said.
Overton organizes a program that helps spread the word about child safety seats, and the proper way to install them.
"The longer they are rear facing the safer they are," she added.
Overton's organization checked car seats Saturday and regularly does other inspections.
State highway safety leaders plan to clear issues with the current Louisiana law next year.
