A news brief that ran in the Aug. 5 edition contained information about the new Maryland child safety seat law that may be misleading.

The law, which went into effect July 1, states that children up to age 4 and weighing under 40 pounds must be placed in a safety seat.

Children who weigh more than 40 pounds and/or are ages 4 through 10 must be secured in a seat belt or seat belt/harness combination.

For more information on child safety seats, contact Project Kids InSafety Seats at 225-1376.
