Health officials urge parents to buckle up children

Posted: Updated:
RUTLAND, Vt. -

After an alarming inspection, Vermont health officials are urging parents to check their children's car seats.

Technicians looked at 83 cars with children in them last week and only two had properly working car seats.

All the other vehicles either had car seats that were not installed correctly, defective or not used.

In some cases, children were found riding in adults' laps.

The Health Department says children should not use seat belts until they are at least 4-foot-9 inches.
