I was told of an accident yesterday where a child was injured. The injury could have been prevented if the parents were following the law. Not many people are aware that California has a back seat law regarding children. If your pick up truck does not have a back seat and it is equipped with an airbag it should have an air bag shut off switch. If it does not you are required to use another vehicle when transporting children.

Effective January 1, 2005, California Law will require children to ride in the back seat in a properly secured child passenger safety restraint until they are at least 6 years old or weigh 60 pounds.

It is a good idea to once in a while check your highway patrol web site to see if any laws have been updated.

Hope everyone has a safe and Merry Chirstmas.
