New York State law requires all children under the age of four to ride in safety seats
For the best child passenger protection in your vehicle:
·Never put a child safety seat that faces the rear of the vehicle in the front seat of a vehicle if the vehicle has a passenger-side air bag.
·Do not put small children in the front seat of vehicle that has an air bag. Put a child that does not use a safety seat and who is less than five ft. in height in the back seat.
·If a child must ride in the front seat, make sure the car seat is installed as far back as possible. Fasten the child securely in the child safety seat or lap and shoulder belts. An air bag that opens suddenly can cause a serious injury to your infant or young child.
·Air bags, used with seat belts, provide the best protection for older children and adults during an accident.
·Remember that the back seat is the safest location for children to ride. Read more tips on the correct use of safety seats and child restraint systems.
