"Often times, people think it's a quick neighborhood trip or a friend transporting my child might not have a booster seat or safety seat, said Rose White, AAA Nebraska. "Those are the types of situation where accidents do occur."
Last legislative session, lawmakers pushed for stricter regulations to protect children.
"We have to remember that for small children, a seat belt could cut across their abdomen in a severe crash," said White. "They need to be in a safety seat, booster seat...so the force of the crash will be on the safety seat."
