Child Passenger (Car Seat) Safety

New York State law requires children under age 8 to be restrained in a proper child restraint (car seat with harness or belt positioning booster seat, depending on the child’s age, weight, and height).

As of November 1, 2019, New York State law requires all children to ride rear-facing until age 2.
