New NY law says kids must be in rear-facing car seat



ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Toddlers now have to be placed in rear-facing car seats under a new law in New York.

The law came into effect at the start of November. State officials say New York must ensure young children are protected in the event of a crash or sudden stop.

The law applies to all children under the age of two.

State officials advice against buying used child safety seats that could be expired or missing parts.

Drivers should also get car seats checked at safety events or a local fitting events to ensure children are properly restrained in cars.
