New regulations sought for child car seats

WASHINGTON (AP) - The government wants to upgrade the standards for child safety seats.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will propose today that child car seats for the first time would have to protect children from death and injury in side impact crashes.

The agency says the new standards could prevent the deaths of about five children and injuries to 64 others each year.
