North Dakota’s Child Passenger Safety Law
- Children younger than 8 years of age are required to ride in a child restraint (car seat or booster seat). The restraint must be used correctly – following the manufacturer’s instructions.
- A correctly-used seat belt may be substituted for children younger than 8 who are at least 4’9” tall.
- Children ages 8 through 17 must be properly secured in a seat belt or child restraint (car seat or booster seat).
- Children younger than 18 must be properly restrained regardless of their location in a vehicle.
- The penalty for violating this law is $25 and one point against the license of the driver. The driver is responsible for ensuring that all occupants are buckled up in the appropriate restraint.
Statistics show that more than 72% of car seats are used incorrectly.
