Children under two must be secured in a rear-facing car seat until the child outgrows the maximum weight and height limits designated by the car seat manufacturer.

Children from age four up to age eight must be restrained in an appropriate booster seat.

Children from age eight up to age eighteen must be in a seat belt.
