Children in vehicles must use an approved child restraint until age 8 or 57 inches tall, fastened per manufacturer's instructions
Children must remain in rear-facing car seats until they are at least 2 years old or reach the minimum weight and height limits set by the car seat manufacturer.
Children who have outgrown their rear-facing car seat by height and weight should use a forward-facing car seat with harness within manufacturer's height & weight limits
Once a child outgrows their forward-facing car seat with a harness, they should use a booster seat until they are 8 years old or over 57 inches tall.
When using a booster seat, the child's lap belt should be snug across their hips and the shoulder belt should be across their chest, not their neck.
(a) Make sure the car seat is appropriate for your child's age, weight, and height. (b) Replace your car seat every 6 years, even if it has not been in a crash.
(c)Read the car seat manual carefully and follow the manufacturer's instructions for installation and use. (d)Register your car seat with the manufacturer so you can be notified of any recalls. (e) Inspect your car seat regularly for damage or wear and tear.
