|NEW YORK STATE'S "NEW" CHILD RESTRAINT LAW is effective November 24, 2009|
All children must be restrained in an appropriate child restraint system while riding in a motor vehicle until they reach their 8th birthday. An appropriate child restraint system is one that meets the child's size and weight recommended by the manufacturer.The safety belt in your vehicle is not designed for children. A booster seat raises your child up so that the safety belt fits your child correctly and provides better protection.
