<b> With the new seat-belt laws, are people in Douglas County making their kids buckle up more than they used to? </b>
The use of seat-belts has increased across the state at about the same rate as the rest of the country, and that includes children in Douglas County. Here, the rate of seat-belt use among kids has risen to 95 percent, up from about 67 percent four years ago, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation.
