NASHVILLE, Tn. — Laws in Tennessee have changed in order to keep kids safer while in their car seats.
USA Today reports that the law now states that children must ride rear-facing until at least age 2.
The bill also requires kids to stay in a harnessed, forward-facing seat until the age of 5 and in a booster seat until the age of 12.
Right now, the law in Ohio says children must be rear-facing until at least a year old, even though the American Academy of Pediatrics says children should be rear-facing until at least two and ideally longer.
