December 2013 – The Middle Tennessee Chapter of the ASSE / Dr. Robert Sanders Child Safety Seat Program announces the donation of 50 child safety seats to area organizations. The Chapter’s program honors the late Dr. Robert Sanders and his legacy of sponsoring legislation to protect children in motor vehicles. Tennessee was the first state in the nation to enact a mandatory child restraint law, which took effect in Tennessee in January 1978. Shortly thereafter, the Chapter began donations and distribution of child safety seats in the region. In December, eight car seats were delivered to AGAPE Nashville.
