Does my child need to be in a child seat?
Children under four years of age are required to be in an approved child restraint system (and in the rear seat if available). A child in a rear facing restraint system may be in the front seat only if the passenger side airbag has been deactivated. Children ages four to seven and under 4 feet 9 inches tall are required to be in an approved child restraint system (booster seat). Children ages eight to 16 must be buckled with the available seat belt regardless of where they are seated. This violation is a primary enforcement violation, which means you can be stopped and ticketed for this violation alone.
