Erie Car Injury Lawyer Posts Updated Child Safety Information

January 4, 2011, ERIE, PA -- So, my youngest daughter is to turn 8 soon. It's a big deal. Not least because she's started to lobby for us to get rid of the booster seat. Now, I practice Pennsylvania injury law and have handled literally thousands of car accident cases. My wife figures I know most everything when it comes to car safety laws. Um, turns out I didn't really know when the law allowed us to stop using a booster seat and I needed to do a little research to figure it out.

Turns out 8 is the magic birthday, after which children no longer need to use a booster seat (but they still must be belted no matter where they're seated in the vehicle and it's recommended that they not sit up front until they're 12).

I've reproduced the section of the Pennsylvania Driver's Manual that addresses child safety restraint systems in our articles library. To read that chapter and for more information about child restraint systems in Pennsylvania vehicles, click HERE .
