Did you know car crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13? Ensure your child is buckled up safely by following these guidelines to keep them safe.

Oklahoma law requires every child under 8 years old to be properly secured in a child passenger restraint system.


How to choose a car seat:

  • 0-2 years: By law, children under 2 must be properly secured in a rear-facing car seat.

  • 2-4 years: Must be in a car seat until age 4.

  • 4-8 years: Must be in a car seat or child booster seat until at least age 8, unless the child is taller than 4'9".

  • 8 years or taller than 4'9": Should wear a seat belt.

  • Regardless of age, the back seat is always the safest place for children.

Buckle them up, every trip, every time. It's the law.

Car Seat Recommendations:

As children grow, how they sit in your car will change. Make sure you use a car seat that fits your child’s current size and age.

Not all car seats fit in all vehicles. Find a Safe Kids Oklahoma or Safe Kids Tulsa event near you to ensure your car seat is installed correctly.

Buy a car seat that can be installed and used correctly every time.

Keep your child in the back seat at least through age 12.
