It is true that car seats are required in Michigan. In fact, in some cases, it’s mandated by the state. The state of Michigan has a list of requirements for the car seat, and many of them are pretty standard.
This is a bit of a surprise. I can’t find a list of all the requirements I had for my car seat. If you don’t include any of these requirements you are getting a list of all the requirements for your car seat.
I know there are some other states that have additional child safety features. The state of Connecticut actually has an “interim” rule that you must have a child safety seat installed before you can take your children on a car trip. I am guessing the requirements for this rule are different in other states.
The car seat requirements are pretty simple. The car seat must be installed by a licensed child passenger seat installer. It must be securely fastened so that it does not move, slide, or topple, and must remain in place when not in use. It must be mounted with a strap or strap system that attaches to the child’s harness so that it does not interfere with their safety. It must be in good condition.
In Michigan, children are required to ride in a car seat when they are three years old. Other states might have car seat requirements at a younger age.
