New Child Seat Law Takes Effect in New York State
New York’s new child seat law took effect last Friday. It requires any child under the age of two to be in a rear-facing car seat. If a child outgrows an infant-only seat before reaching their 2nd birthday, it is recommended that a convertible or all-in-one car seat with higher rear-facing height and weight limits be used. These seats should be installed in the rear-facing position until the child reaches the rear-facing weight or height limit set by the car seat manufacturer.
