Hi there - Not sure where to post this question so apologies if it is in the wrong place!!

We will visiting WDW in September on a package holiday from the UK and will be having a rental car - Could anyone advise me of the law re Child Seats in the U.S - We have a 6 year old child and here in the UK she has to be seated in the back in a booster seat - is it the same in the U.S?

Hope this helps, it is taken right from the Florida MV statute:thumbsup::

316.613 Child restraint requirements.-- (1)(a) Every operator of a motor vehicle as defined herein, while transporting a child in a motor vehicle operated on the roadways, streets, or highways of this state, shall, if the child is 5 years of age or younger, provide for protection of the child by properly using a crash-tested, federally approved child restraint device. For children aged through 3 years, such restraint device must be a separate carrier or a vehicle manufacturer's integrated child seat. For children aged 4 through 5 years, a separate carrier, an integrated child seat, or a seat belt may be used.
