Andrew Finkelstein of Finkelstein & Partners, LLP discusses the child passenger safety law in New York State. In this interview, Attorney Finkelstein points out that any child under the age of 2 must be in an authorized and proper safety seat and should be sitting backwards. He further explains that not putting a child in a safety seat can result in fines up to 25 USD to 100 USD and 3 points on the license. Children weighing 40 pounds or more need to sit on a booster seat.
