In North Carolina, the Child Passenger Safety Law requires children less than age 16 to be properly restrained in an age, weight, and height appropriate restraint. Passengers age 16 and older are covered by the North Carolina Seat Belt Law. The NC Child Passenger Safety Law applies to all vehicles required by federal standards to have seat belts. This includes all passenger cars manufactured after 1967 and vans, pickups, and SUVs manufactured after 1971.
