You’ve got your child safety seat secured in the car, but is it facing the right direction?
Beginning Friday, Aug. 12, children under age 2 who haven’t outgrown manufacturers’ weight limits will have to be buckled into an approved rear-facing child safety seat in the back seat.
Violations could be subject to warnings by police for the first year, after which violations will result in $125 in fines, costs and fees.
Pennsylvania is the fourth state to enact the rear-facing child seat regulations, after California, New Jersey and Oklahoma.
