Washington State Child Restraint Laws

Effective January 1, 2020

  • Children under 13 years old be transported in the back seat where it is practical to do so.
  • Children 4 years and older must ride in a car seat or booster seat until they are 4’9″ tall.
  • Children ages 2 – 4 years must ride in a car seat with a harness (rear or forward-facing).
