Deadly car crashes involving children have fallen 36-percent in the last five years according to statistics just released by C-DOT.

Although officials say the number has dropped. They say there's been no drop in the last three years. Safety officials say they're seeing the biggest problem with children ages 5 to15.

They say parents get the message that babies need to be in safety seats. But once they outgrow the seats, parents are either not making children buckle up or letting them sit in the front seat. State troopers say children under 13 should not sit in the front seat.
