Keep the Little Ones Safe
Alaska State Law requires children to be in a car or booster seat as follows:
- Children younger than 1 year of age or less than 20 pounds (9 kilograms) must be in a rear facing infant seat.
- Children 1 to 4 years and at least 20 pounds (9 kilograms) must be in a child restraint.
- Children 4 through 7 years who are less than 57 inches (1.4 meters) tall or less than 65 pounds (30 kilograms) must be in a booster seat. Booster seats are no longer required for children ages 4-7 once they reach 57 inches (1.4 meters) tall or weigh 65+ pounds (30 kilograms).
- Parents are responsible for providing the appropriate car seat.
