Do You Know the New Car Seat Guidelines?

By on 08/17/2016

There’s a new law in Pennsylvania designed to ensure a safer ride for children.

All children must remain in a rear-facing car seat until they are 2 years old, or exceed the maximum height and weight limit. At that point, a forward-facing car seat is required until the child exceeds the height and weight limits.

After children have outgrown their car seat, they are required to sit in a forward-facing booster seat until they are 4 feet, 9 inches tall.

PennDOT has various safely laws for motorists. Whether you live in Pennsylvania or are just passing through, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the driving safety guidelines and fines for violations.
