Beginning this month, drivers who fail to properly restrain children riding in a motor vehicle could face a fine of up to $250 for a first offense. According to the Texas Department of Public Safety website, “a person commits an offense if the person operates a passenger vehicle, transports a child who is younger than 8 years of age, unless the child is taller than 4 feet, 9 inches, and does not keep the child secured during the operation of the vehicle in a child passenger safety seat system according to the instructions of the manufacturer of the safety seat system.”
