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.
Evaluations & Check-Ups

Statistics show that more than 72% of car seats are used incorrectly.

Do you need your car seat checked? Stop in to get yours evaluated or visit our community car seat check-up events that are offered seasonally. Follow our Facebook page to learn more about when these events are offered in Jamestown and surrounding areas.
