EVERYONE MUST ALWAYS WEAR A SEAT BELT!

Did you know:

  • The fine for not wearing a seat belt is $115.00
  • Rear facing seats should be used until the child is at least 2 years old and reaches the maximum height or weight limit given by the manufacturer of the seat
  • Forward facing seats should be used once the child has outgrown the rear facing seat
  • Booster seats should be used until the child reaches the maximum height or weight limit given by the manufacturer of the seat
  • Seat Belts should be used when seat belts fits the child properly; typically when the child is between 8 and 12 years old and is 4'9" tall.
