The National Security Council is calling for uniform child passenger safety practices across multiple modes of transportation including RVs.
The Council encourages ambulances, police vehicles and recreational vehicles to accommodate the needs of child passengers whenever possible, and calls for additional consideration when transporting children with special needs.
“Our patchwork system of laws, regulations and standards means the safety of our most vulnerable travelers can slip through the cracks,” said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. “It is time for consistent policies to ensure children arrive safely, regardless of the mode of transportation or the jurisdiction they travel through.”
