Just because you are driving the safest SUV on the market doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t always take extra care and pre-caution not only for yourself, but for your children riding in the backseat as well. At Land Rover Austin in Austin, Texas, we want to make sure that you understand the guidelines and laws when it comes to child safety seats.
The law in Texas regarding child safety restraints in passenger vehicles states that a person commits an offense if the person operates a passenger vehicle, transports a child who is younger than eight years of age, unless the child is taller than four feet, nine inches and does not keep the child secured during the operation of the vehicle in a child passenger safety seat system according to the instructions of the manufacturer of the safety seat system. Hefty fines can incur if you are caught with your children unrestrained, but more importantly you put your child at risk, so make sure you keep them buckled up at all times.
As always, please take be aware of your driving as well as the driving of those around you, and keep your little one safe and secure at all times. Should you have any other questions regarding how to properly secure your child in your Land Rover then please feel free to give us a call.
