MEDIA ADVISORY

For Release: February 12, 2002
Contact: Dick Gunn
271-5601

What: News conference to discuss the proposed amendments to Oklahoma’s child passenger safety law.

Who: Speakers will include:

  • Roxanne Albrecht, M.D., Director, Trauma Surgical Critical Care, University of Oklahoma
  • Peggy Cain, mother of a child saved by a booster seat
  • Sen. Ben Robinson, author of S.B. 910
  • Martha Collar, Coordinator, Oklahoma SAFE KIDS Coalition

When: Thursday, Feb. 14, 11 a.m.

Where: State Capitol, Second Floor Rotunda

Why:

  • Because car crash injuries are the leading health risk to Oklahoma children over age 1.
  • Because more than 70 percent of the children who die in a car crash are not in a child safety seat.
  • Because what is currently legal in Oklahoma is not safe.
  • Because S.B. 910 would bring Oklahoma law closer in line with “best practice.”
