LANSING (WTVB) - A bill to close a loophole in Michigan's child safety seat law was recently approved by the Senate Transportation Committee. Introduced by State Senator John Proos, the plan would eliminate a way for someone to get out of a ticket if they're cited for violating the child safety seat rule. Proos says that the law does require parents to properly restrain their kids in the car, but they can get out of the ticket if they simply show the magistrate a receipt for the purchase of a car seat. Proos' legislation would get rid of that exception. He says that parents ought to have a safety seat for their kids from the get-go, and not have a way to get around that if they're caught. The plan now goes to the full Senate.
