What are the car seat requirements for children?
Children under the age of eight years must be secured in an appropriate child restraint system, more commonly called a child safety seat. Child safety seats include infant seats, convertible seats (rear-facing for infants and forward-facing for toddlers), and booster seats that are used with the vehicle lap and shoulder belt system.
Children and young people ages eight years to under 16 years must be secured in a properly adjusted safety belt in any position in the vehicle.
The parent or legal guardian is responsible for providing a child restraint system to any person who transports their child.
