  • Children up to age 8 or 80 pounds must ride in a safety or booster seat in the rear seat of the vehicle. If there is no rear seat, the child must sit in the front seat secured by a safety or booster seat.
  • Children under age 8 who weigh more than 80 pounds must wear a seat belt anywhere in the vehicle.
  • Passengers age 8 to 18 (regardless of weight ) must wear a seat belt anywhere inside a vehicle.
