Maryland's New Child Safety Seat Law Effective Oct. 1.

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - Maryland's new child safety seat law is set to take effect on Oct. 1.

It will now require children under eight years of age to be in a child safety seat, unless they are 4 feet 9 inches or taller.  This change removes the weight exemption of children weighing more than sixty-five pounds who could previously be transported in a motor vehicle without a child safety seat.

The law will also increase the fines for violations from $25 to $50.
