Parents to Comply With New Rear-Facing Car Seat Law This Friday November 1, 2019
Senator Jim Gaughran reminded parents that a new State law will take effect this Friday, November 1, 2019 which will make car seats safer and protect young children. The law requires children under two years old to be buckled in a rear-facing car seat. This law, similar to those already in effect in neighboring New Jersey, will increase the safety of child passengers in cars by protecting their heads, necks, and spines from injuries.
Senator Jim Gaughran said “The safety of our children is critically important. This important public safety measure will protect young children in cars, by buckling them in a rear-facing car seat. This will increase the safety of our youngest passengers by protecting their heads, necks, and spines from injuries. As a father, I urge all parents and families to heed this new law designed to protect the safety of child passengers.”
