Safety Seat Laws

Children must be in a child passenger restraint system until age six and in a vehicle's safety belt system age six and over. Booster seats are encouraged until children are eight years old or 80 pounds. Children under the age of 12 should be buckled into the back seat of the vehicle.

Oklahoma is one of several states in which law enforcement agents may stop you for not having your children properly secured in a child safety seat when you vehicle is moving. If you are found in violation of this law you may be issued a citation, be fined, and also may have to pay court costs.
