State Senate passes child restraint bill

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A bill to increase the fine for parents who fail to put their children in child safety seats has passed the state Senate.

The bill by Senator Clark Jolley raises the fine from $10 -- plus $15 in court costs -- to $50 plus court costs. The fine can be waived for a first offense if the parent shows proof of purchase of a proper child restraint seat.

Money raised by the increase is to go to the state's Highway Safety Office for public education programs about the need for using child safety seats.

The bill now goes to the House for consideration.
