New child safety seat law takes effect

June 27, 2004

Albany- One of more than 100 measures passed by the General Assembly last session calls for stricter guidelines when buckling up small children.

Starting Thursday all children under the age of 6 must be restrained in a height and weight appropriate child safety seat. The old law only required those four and under to be strapped in a car seat.

The ruling includes a $50 fine for first time violators and a $100 fine for those with two or more violations.
