Car seats and booster seats protect your kiddos in the car. Starting January 1, 2019, Nebraska’s child passenger safety law changes to help keep children safer as they travel. According to the new law:

• Children must ride rear-facing up to age 2 or until they reach the upper weight or height limit allowed by the car seat manufacturer.

• Children up to age 8 must ride in a correctly installed car seat or booster seat.

• Children up to age 8 must ride in the back seat, as long as there is a back seat equipped with a seat belt and is not already occupied by other children under 8 years old.

• Children 8 to 18 years old must ride secured in a seat belt or child safety seat/booster.
