Tennessee Child Safety Seat Laws

Child Safety Seat

Children age infant to twelve (12)

Children between 1 to 3 years old weighing more than 20 lbs. must be properly secured in an approved forward-facing or rear facing child safety seat.

Children age one (1) through age three (3), and weighing more than twenty (20) pounds, must be secured in a child safety seat in a forward facing position in the rear seat, if available, or according to the child safety restraint system or vehicle manufacturer’s instructions.

Children 4 to 8 years old and less than 4 ft 9 in tall must be properly secured in an approved belt-positioning booster seat system.Children age four (4) through age eight (8), and measuring less than four feet nine inches (4’9″) in height, must be secured in a belt-positioning booster seat system, meeting federal motor vehicle safety standards in the rear seat, if available, or according to the child safety restraint system or vehicle manufacturer’s instructions. (Note: If the child is not between age four (4) and age eight (8), but is less than four feet nine inches (4’9″) in height, he/she must still use a seat belt system meeting federal motor vehicle safety standards.)

Tennessee state law mandates that your child should sit in the rear seat (when available) until they turn 9 years old. However, children age 12 and under should ride in the back seat of the vehicle whenever possible as the back seat is the safest position for children.
