Car Seats and Booster Seats Save Lives
Virginia has a simple rule for drivers and passengers seated in the front seat: you must wear a seat belt. There are a number of exceptions for mail carriers, taxi drivers and passengers, and people who have been told by a doctor that they should not wear a seat belt for medical reasons. However, by and large, if you are in the front seat and not wearing a seat belt, you are in violation of Virginia law.
Whether you’re a new parent, a parent with a new car or just purchased a new car seat, if you’d like to make sure that your child’s safety seat is properly installed and meets with local law requirements, you can make an appointment at several police stations in Fairfax County to have the seat inspected. A properly installed child safety seat can go a long way in preventing injuries in an auto accident.
