    Exclamation WI Child Passenger Safety Law

    (New) Law in effect as of June 1, 2006:
    • Children must be in a car seat until they reach age 4 and in a booster seat until they reach age 8

    • Tiered structure now applies:
      o Less than 1 year old, or less than 20 lbs. must be in a rear-facing child seat in the back seat (if so equipped)
      o Age 1 to age 4, or less than 40 lbs. must be in a forward-facing child seat in the back seat (if so equipped)
      o Age 4 to age 8, between 40-80 lbs., and no more than 4 ft. 9 ins. must be in a booster seat

    • The fines remain the same, although tiered for ages 0-4 and ages 4-8

    • The exemption allowing temporary removal of a child from a restraint to attend to personal needs has been removed

    • The exemption for physical, medical, or body size condition still applies to booster seats and seat belts
