Seat Belts/Motor Vehicle Restraints: The Texas Medical Association supports the prudent use of motor vehicle restraints for children, as defined by the American Academy of Pediatrics' guidelines on car safety seats, and encourages physicians to be informed and educate parents about these guidelines. A public fund should be established to ensure ongoing financial support for a public education program regarding proper child restraints in automobiles (CPH Rep. 10-I-98; reaffirmed Res. 302-A-01; amended CM-CAH Rep. 2-A-11).
