Change in Pa. car seat law begins Aug. 12


Mother Putting Baby Son Into Car Travel Seat

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.

For more information, visit the state Department of Transportation website.
