Local and/or state laws regarding car seats and child restraint systems (booster seats).

New York's Occupant Restraint laws require the following:

  • Children up to the age of 4 must be properly restrained in a federally approved child safety seat that is attached to a vehicle by a seat belt or universal child restraint anchorage (LATCH) system.
  • Children less than age 4 but weighing more than 40 poundsmay be restrained in a booster seat with a lap/shoulder safety belt. However, a child safety seat that accommodates higher weights can be used.
  • Children ages 4, 5, 6 and 7 must be properly secured in an appropriate child restraint system, one for which the child meets the height and weight recommendations of the child restraint manufacturer.*
  • An appropriate child restraint system is one that meets the child's size and weight recommended by the manufacturer.
  • A vehicle's safety belt is NOT a child restraint system.
  • Children riding in booster seats must be secured with a combination lap/shoulder seat belt, NEVER secure a child in a booster seat with only a lap belt.
  • From the age of 8 until they reach their 16th birthday, children must be restrained in a seat belt whenever they ride in a vehicle. All Front seat passengers must be properly restrained at all times, regardless of age.
  • Children 12 years and younger should ride in the back seat. By simply buckling up your child in the back seat reduces his/her risk of death by 33%.

*It is recommended that booster seats be used until your child is 4 foot 9 inches tall or weighs 100 pounds.[/li][/list]

Ouch...
bassically their all not good...
whats that site u used? so interesting..
and also its amazing that it got an almost 5 star rating- and these car seats NEVER score that high!!!
i think also the rating has what to do with the price.. u c the chpr ones all scored higher- and i dont believe their better AT ALL. Have you ever put you kid in one of those cosco seats? also their all geared to diff ages on this list. You cant compare a booster seat with an infant convertible seat. Just my feeling... And i have the maxi cosi seat (rated here as a 57) i bought it for 100$- and im not thrilled about it. (i didnt plan to be it was only 100$) and it doesnt nearly have a 5 star rating as this combi car seat has... but thats just my feeling. Honestly i think its all a bunch of crap- and a bunch of sales... but their all pretty much do the same thing. (and as u can see from this list, they all pretty much dont do as much as they claim to do..)

Not to be greedy, but you left out 22 lb and under.

Obviously he's trying to say that it's pointless to get one that small as they grow out of it in a day.  :)

+1.
Why get the 22 pound when you can get the Chicco 30?
