Law enforcement spotlights new rules

A new year introduces new laws to California’s books, and local law enforcement officials are keen on spreading awareness about a pair of driving-related mandates in particular: one pertaining to child safety seats and one pertaining to mobile device use.

The passage of Assembly Bill 53 means children under 2 years of age must ride in a rear-facing car seat unless they weigh 40 pounds or more or are 40 inches or taller. Existing California law requires everyone within a motor vehicle to wear some form of safety restraint, and passengers under 8 years old must be secured in an appropriate backseat restraint system.
