> Is a booster seat legal for a two year old in NY?
I can't seem to load the state law pages linked in the resource thread. A friend just moved her son into a booster. She says he is 30 pounds but she must be weighing him soaking wet while fully clothed in a parka and snowpants. He will not turn 3 until August. My attempts at educating her on the safety issues fall on deaf ears but she would pay attention to the law. She says the salesperson at Toys R Us told her this is legal. Can anyone point me to and/or explain the law for New York? Thanks!
Check with your state's laws. Each state is a little different and that is why it is not posted on the car seat packaging.
I am from there and i have never heard that is illegal for two year old. May be some restriction on below 2.
Just to clarify, when you say booster, are you referring to a belt positioning booster seat, or a combination booster seat, which has a harness in it?
