NYS law requires children under age eight to be restrained in an appropriate child safety restraint system. An appropriate child restraint system is one that meets the child's size and weight and the specifications of the manufacturer of such system. A child restraint system may be a child safety seat, harness, vest or a booster seat. The vehicle's safety belt alone is not a child restraint system.
More information about NYS's law on child passenger safety can be found on the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee website.
