Updated: 12/08/2011 - Some call it an epidemic. It's an alarming increase in the number of children not properly restrained as they ride along Kentucky roadways. In 2009, one-hundred thirteen children, under five involved in collisions, were not properly restrained. The number dropped to one-hundred four last year. But this year, there's a sharp increase to one hundred twenty-nine, and the year isn't over yet.
