(UNDATED) - Indiana state police, across the entire Hoosier state, will start a crackdown on child safety laws on Sunday.

Citing statistics of about 45 children being killed in accidents in 2006, and more than 4,000 being injured, state police are urging people who drive children in their vehicles to learn the correct way to secure them.

State police say children from birth until the age of 8, are required to be secured in a child restraint. All children from age 8 to 16 are required to be either in a child seat or a safety belt in all positions at all times.

State police will be issuing citations for children who are improperly secured, but will also be issuing vouchers to parents who are found not to have a needed child seat, which can be redeemed for a free seat at various state locations.
