Child Safety Seats
Always follow your state child restraint seat laws. Make sure that the vehicle's seat belt is put through the correct slot in the safety seat. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends keeping children in booster seats until age eight, or unless the child is at least 4'9" tall.
To protect children, follow this four-step guideline:
- Install rear-facing seats for infants aged 0 to 1 year old or up to 20 pounds in weight.
- Install forwarding-facing seats for toddlers age 1 to 5 years old or up to 50 pounds.
- Install booster chairs for children up to 8 years old or up to 80 pounds in weight.
- Provide seat belts (both lap and shoulder) for all other passengers.
