On August 12, 2016 Pennsylvania lawmakers passed a law that required children under the age of two years old to be buckled into a rear facing car seat. This law was enacted in response to multiple data sources, including a posted study by AAA, that identified auto accidents as the number one cause of injury and death for young children. Pennsylvania lawmakers allowed for a one year grace period in which Pennsylvania residents that violated this law would receive only a warning for failure to comply to this statute. This warning period has expired and residents who now fail to secure children under two years of age in a rear facing car seat in the state of Pennsylvania run the risk of prosecution to the full extent of the law.

Pennsylvania lawmakers boast of a proud record of enacting laws that will ensure the safety of Keystone State residents. Providing for the safety of small children as they travel state roads in Pennsylvania is a top priority. It is the hope of Pennsylvania lawmakers that this law will have a positive impact on that goal.
