Knowing which car seat is best for your child can be a challenge, and lives of many children may be at risk simply because their parents put them in the wrong child safety seat or because their seat is not properly installed.
Florida law requires children under 5 years of age to be properly restrained no matter where they are seated in the vehicle.
• Children through age 3 must be secured in a separate carrier (child safety seat) or in a vehicle manufacturer's integrated child safety seat.
• Children ages 4 - 5, a separate carrier, an integrated child safety seat, or a safety belt may be used. If a safety belt does not fit the child correctly, a booster set should be used to correctly position the lap and shoulder belts once they outgrow forward facing child safety seats (generally at about 40 pounds and 4 years old).
• Children from approximately 40-80 pounds and under 4'9" in height should ride in a booster seat.
These are primary offenses. Police officers can stop cars just because someone is not properly restrained. They can also give tickets with $50 fines.
