New Statewide Car Seat Laws Take Effect this Friday

Local News

A reminder that the state’s new car seat laws take effect on Friday (November 1), requiring all children under two-years-old to use a rear-facing car seat.

Most children will outgrow a rear-facing infant seat before reaching the age of two.

In these cases, it’s recommended to use a larger, rear-facing Convertible or All-in-One car seat with greater height and weight limits, which are set by the manufacturer.

New Yorkers have three different options when it comes to rear-facing car seats, namely Infant Seats, Convertible Seats, and All-in-One Seats.

According to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration say the rear-facing position is much safer for children, reducing strain to the neck and spinal cord.

Officials say these safety features are particularly important for growing babies.
