2014 New Child Safety Seat Laws

Posted by on

The new year does bring many changes, for many of us another year older for our legislation more highway safety laws. So as you drive into 2014, be aware of the changes to ensure you and your family are keeping safe.

Over and under 65 pounds…New car seat laws state that the LATCH (LowerAnchors andTethers for Children) system is no longer appropriate for all children. LATCH anchors have a maximum combined weight of the child and child seat of 65 lbs. The laws have changed because the LATCH system anchors may not hold the additional weight of both the child and the car seat so parents need to take into account the weight of the car seat and the weight of their child and then determine when to move out of LATCH and into the vehicle’s safety belts.

Are following the new law correctly?

  • Weigh your child and the car seat separately.
  • LATCH systems use the combined weight of child and car seat, that total must be less than 65 pounds.
  • Over 65 pounds – graduate and use the seat belt restraint.
