North Dakota's Child Passenger Safety Law

Children younger than 8 years of age are required to ride in a child restraint (car seat or booster seat). The restraint must be used correctly – following the manufacturer’s instructions.

A correctly-used seat belt may be substituted for children younger than 8 who are at least 4’9” tall.

Children ages 8 through 17 must be properly secured in a seat belt or child restraint (car seat or booster seat).

Children younger than 18 must be properly restrained regardless of their location in a vehicle.

The penalty for violating this law is $25 and one point against the license of the driver. The driver is responsible for ensuring that all occupants are buckled up in the appropriate restraint.
