California Car Seat LawsCalifornia law mandates that children under the age of 8 are required to be placed in a car seat type restraint. An exception applies if the parent or legal guardian of the child is present in the vehicle at the time. However, as a general rule it is required that your child be placed in a rear car seat restraint so as to avoid injury or harm to his or her body.
