Car Seat Info

Child Restraint laws require children riding in vehicles to use approved restraint devices such as car seats, booster seats, or seat belts that are appropriate for their age, height, and weight.

Not using an appropriate device or using the device incorrectly increases your child's risk for serious injury or death in a motor vehicle collision.

In 2019, 608 child passengers age 12 and younger died in motor vehicle crashes,1 and more than 91,000 were injured.  Of the children 12 and younger who died in a crash (for whom restraint use was known), 38% were not buckled up.  Parents and caregivers can make a lifesaving difference by checking whether their children are properly buckled on every trip.
