In the state of Michigan, children must be properly buckled into a rear car seat or booster seat until they are 8 years old or 4-feet 9-inches tall. A back seat safety belt must be worn. There is no grey area when it comes to this law – buckle up, or else. And why would you want to risk your child’s safety? However, the problem with buckling up in the backseat doesn’t occur with children – it happens with adults. There are far too many fatalities for people over the age of 8 riding in the back seat, without a safety belt.
The bottom line is this: When there is a safety belt, you should be wearing it, no matter what part of the vehicle you’re sitting in.
