(Effective October 1, 2012)

• Every child under 8 years old must ride in an appropriate child restraint* unless the child is 4 feet, 9 inches or taller.

• Every child from 8 to 16 years old who is not secured in a child restraint must be secured in a vehicle seat belt.

Protect your children as they ride!

Children under 13 years old should ride in the back seat. The back seat is the safest.
