After October 1, 2005 children must ride in a proper child restraint until they are over 6 years of age AND 60 pounds! (Both the age and weight requirements must be met) After children outgrow their car seat, they must ride in a booster seat using a lap and shoulder belt.

 

The law also now requires that infants remain rear-facing until they are 1 year of age AND 20 pounds!

 Violators will be fined and required to attend a car seat education class
