What is the most current Child Safety Seat Law and what does it require?

Effective January 1, 2005 the North Carolina Child Passenger Safety law requires children to be in a child passenger restraint system until they reach 8 years of age or 80 pounds, whichever comes first. Most drivers will comply by using belt positioning booster seats, but other child restraints with harnesses rated for use over forty pounds will be legal to use as well. 

If you would like to have your child restraint system inspected for correct installation, you may contact the police department at 336-434-3134 and schedule an appointment with a child restraint technician. Appointments are available Wednesdays and Thursdays between 1 and 3 pm.
