Recently, the lawmakers in Harrisburg passed new car seat and seat belt laws that affect children in Pennsylvania. Children must be in a rear-facing car seat with a 5-point harness until the age of two. Then as long as they weigh 40 pounds they may be moved to a forward-facing car seat. From the ages 4-8 and as long as the child in under 57 inches tall, he or she may ride in the backseat with a booster seat. After the child is over 57 inches tall they may sit in the backseat with just the safety belt. And remember, the safest place for any child under the age of 13 to ride is in the back seat of your vehicle! Trust Bachman’s Auto Repair-where your family comes first.
