but think you can’t afford one?
You can’t afford not to have a car seat!
If your child were seriously injured in a motor vehicle crash, the medical bills would mount into thousands of dollars. One day in a typical intensive care unit costs about $2,000!!
If stopped by a law enforcement officer for violation of Oklahoma’s Child Restraint Law, one ticket would cost between $32 and $102.
