Car Seat Laws Change For 2014
Are you in compliance?
Just a heads up for parents of toddlers and kids. There are car seat recommendation changes in 2014. The new recommendation says that the LATCH system should no longer be used when the child and car seat combined weight is over 65 pounds.
This is an amendment to the law from 2001 that recommended that all children up to 65 pounds remain in car seats/boosters, but that did not take into account the weight of car seats.
How can you be sure you’re meeting these guidelines? Weigh your child, then weigh the seat, then add them together. If they’re over 65 pounds combined, start using the seat belt restraint versus the LATCH system.
