Car Seat Laws Have Changed in 2014

*you may need to use a little imagination with my stick figure baby in this car seat*
Now that I'm a grandma, I seem to seek out the new laws and updates that pertain to kids. So while surfing the internet recently I read a few articles that said the laws about child safety seat are changing next year.

The new law states: The latch system should no longer be used when the combined weight of the child and the car seat is over 65lbs.

The law needed to be modified because the manufacturers cannot guarantee that the latch system will be enough to hold the car seat in place if you get into an accident. So use the seat belt restraint instead of the latch system in the installation of the car seat if the combined weight of the child and the car seat is over 65lbs.

All children should be buckled up.


  1. I am so glad that there has been increased awareness about the importance of car seats in the past few years.

  2. Never knew that one, should be done

  3. well, that will come in handy when I will have kids.

  4. Keith, me too. I've seen too many people in cars holding their babies and it makes me cringe.

    Pat, Agreed.

    George, You're welcome.
