Wisconsin Statute 347.48 explains the mandatory use of seat belts and the appropriate use of child safety seats.
Seat belts are the simplest and most effective tools we have to reduce highway fatalities and serious, life altering injuries.
Children ages four to eight must be restrained in a vehicle seat belt or car safety seat.
No one may transport a child unless the child is properly restrained, meaning it must be fastened in a manner prescribed by the manufacturer of the system, which permits the system to act as a body restraint.
