ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A law aimed to make car seats safer in New York is set to go into effect on November 1.

The law requires children under two years old to be buckled in a rear-facing car seat.

Officials said it will increase the safety of child passengers in cars by protecting their heads, necks, and spines from injuries.

Similar laws are already in effect in California and New Jersey.
