West Virginia Child Safety Seat and Seat Belt Laws


West Virginia state law requires that all children under age 8 ride in an appropriate, federally approved car seat or booster seat that is installed and used according to manufacturer's instructions. If the child is under 8 years old but is taller than 4'9", the child may ride in a seat belt according to West Virginia law.

Child passenger safety is a primary law in West Virginia. This means a police officer may pull you over if he or she does not believe your child is properly restrained.
