Vehicle Rules
A seat belt must be worn at all times. Children under the age of 8 are required to be properly restrained in an appropriate child safety seat.  “In Illinois, by law children who have outgrown their child safety seat must be properly restrained in a booster seat until they are at least 8 years old. The American Academy of Pediatric recommends booster seat use until the adult belt fits properly – which could be as old as 12 years for some children.”  Safety seats are to be provided by the parent/guardian of the child. This may change with the changing of state law.  State law supersedes this policy. Additional vehicle rules are as follows:
