NC Car Seat Laws

We get asked about car seats a lot, so we created this helpful table of North Carolina car seat laws.

AgeBirth to 1 year old1 to 2 years2 to 8 years8 years old and up
Weightup to 20 lbs20-40 lbs40 to 80 lbsat least 80 lbs and 4'9" tall
Car Seat PositionRear Facing OnlyRear Facing OnlyBooster SeatLap/Shoulder Safety Belt

*Children 12 and under must ride in the back seat.

*Children should remain in a rear facing seat as long as possible.

The American Academy of Pediatrics announced that parents should keep their children in rear-facing car seats until age two (not one as previously recommended).  The newest research has shown that kids in rear-facing seats are more than five times safer than those riding in forward-facing seats.  Statistics from recent studies have shown that children under the age of 2 who ride in rear-facing seats are 75% less likely to die or suffer major injury during a collision.

* You can have your car seat inspected to ensure proper installation at your local Fire Department free of charge.
