Car Seat Program

The Onondaga County Car Seat Program is sponsored by Catholic Charities of Onondaga County

The Car Seat Program Offers:
Free car seats (call for income eligibility requirements)
New York State requires that every child under eight (8) years of age be in a federally approved child safety seat while riding in a car. Children under sixteen (16) years of age must be buckled when riding in either the front or back seat of any passenger vehicle.

Please check:
• Is the vehicle seat belt through the child safety seat in the proper place?
Is the child safety seat in the car tight without moving over an inch?
• Are all the harness straps being used to hold the child in the safety seat?
• Are all children under 12 years old riding in the backseat?
Infants should face backwards in their car seat until at least two years old or until they out grow the seat height and weight requirements.
