Car Seat Laws

This website exists to provide people with the latest car seat laws and information for states across America in a quick, easy to read format. All pages link to the appropriate state’s DMV, State Police, Department of Human Services or Transportation Department’s official resources for easy reference.

When state laws inadequately protect children, we point that out as well. For example, only a handful of states require rear-facing car seats even though the NHTSA points out it is scientific fact that they reduce major injuries.

If you have questions, concerns or a suggestion on how we can improve please feel free to let us know.
