The National Transportation Safety Board is calling on Florida and 20 other states to toughen their child passenger safety laws. The NTSB wants child restraint laws to cover kids up to 8.
Florida, "with the most lenient child passenger safety law in the nation," the NTSB says, only requires child safety seats for children age 3 years or younger. Other states go up to 4, 5 and 6.
Tougher laws are "critical if we are serious about keeping our youngest travelers safe on the roadways," said board chair Deborah Hersman.
