Traffic Tip Tuesdays: Child Safety Seats


Traffic Tip Tuesdays: Child Safety Seats 

Sec. 22-412.2

Child safety seats are required for all children under the age of 8.

Maryland Vehicle Law defines a child safety seat as intended “to be used to restrain, seat, or position a child who is transported in a motor vehicle. ‘Child safety seat’ does not mean a seat belt or combination seat belt-shoulder harness used alone.”

“A child safety seat meets the requirements of this section only if it is installed and used in accordance with the directions of the manufacturer.”

“A person transporting a child under the age of 8 years in a motor vehicle shall secure the child in a child safety seat in accordance with the child safety seat and vehicle manufacturers’ instructions unless the child is 4 feet, 9 inches tall or taller.”

Further, “a person may not transport a child under the age of 16 years unless the child is secured in: 1) A child safety seat or 2) A seat belt.”

“A child safety seat or seat belt may not be used to restrain, seat or position more than one individual at a time.”

The fine for not securing a child in a child safety seat is $83.
