Safety Seat Directions

Proper Safety Seat Directions:

Rear-Facing Seat

For the best possible protection, keep infants and young toddlers in the back seat, in a rear-facing child safety seat, as long as possible up to the height or weight limit of the particular seat.


Front-Facing Seat

Children may ride in forward-facing child safety seats, in the back seat, until they reach the upper weight or height limit of the seat.


Booster Seats

Once children outgrow their forward-facing seat, they should ridein booster seats, in the back seat, until vehicle seat belts fit properly.
