Use the correct car seat

  • Description:
    Using the correct car seat or booster seat can be a lifesaver: make sure your child is always buckled in an age-and size-appropriate cat seat or booster seat.

    Rear-Facing Car Seat

    Birth up to Age 2

    Buckle children in a rear-facing seat until age 2 or when they reach the upper weight or height limit of that seat.

    Forward-Facing Car Seat

    Age 2 up to at least age 5*

    When children outgrow their rear-facing seat, they should be buckled in a forward-facing car seat until at least age 5 or when they reach the upper weight or height limit of that seat.

    Booster Seat

    Age 5 up until seat belts fit properly*

    Once children outgrow their forward-facing seat, they should be buckled in a booster seat until seat belts fit properly. The recommended height for proper seat belt fit is 57 inches tall.

    Seat Belt

    Once seat belts properly without a booster seat.

    Children no longer need to use a booster seat once seat belts fit them properly. Seat belts fit properly when the lap belt lays across the upper highs (not the stomach) and the shoulder belt lays across the chest (not the neck).

    Keep children ages 12 and under in the back seat. Never place a rear-facing car seat in front of an active air bag.
