Safety Seats

Maine state law requires babies and children weighing under 40 pounds to ride in a federally approved, properly secured car seat. Maine's new child passenger safety law further requires children under age eight and under 80 pounds to ride in a car seat or belt-positioning booster seat. Children under age 18 must wear seat belts if they are not in a car sat or booster seat, and children under age 12 and weighing less than 100 pounds must ride in a rear seat if possible.
