Whatever the fine might cost, the ultimate cost could be the life of the child!

what is the three types of the child restraint systems are:

It is not that simple. Any age can be carried in the front seat as follows: Up to 3 years old in an appropriate child restraint (not rear facing if there is an airbag fitted). From 3 to height 1.35 metres or under age 12 - 13 in an appropriate child restraint. Over 1.35 metres or at age 12 - 13 in an adult restraint. Up to the age of 14 the legal responsibility for the use of the appropriate restraint lies with the driver. At age 14 the legal responsibility for the use of the appropriate restraint lies is on the passenger. The full rules are at the links below.

Children and infants 3 years of age and under must be properly secured using a crash-tested, federally approved child restraint device. Such restraint devices must be a separate carrier.

In Arizona a child must be at least 5 years old to not require a child restraint, however, a child restraint need not be placed in the back seat. It is unsafe for a child of under 12 to ride in the front seat if there is an air bag.

A child cannot travel with a learner driver.

It's not about how tall you are, this is from the NY State Ploice website. New York's Occupant Restraint laws require the following: Children up to the age of 4 must be properly restrained in a federally approved child safety seat that is attached to a vehicle by a seat belt or universal child restraint anchorage (LATCH) system. Children less than age 4 but weighing more than 40 pounds may be restrained in a booster seat with a lap/shoulder safety belt. Children ages 4, 5, 6 and 7 must be properly secured in an appropriate child restraint system, one for which the child meets the height and weight recommendations of the child restraint manufacturer.* An appropriate child restraint system is one that meets the child's size and weight recommended by the manufacturer. A vehicle's safety belt is NOT a child restraint system. Children riding in booster seats must be secured with a combination lap/shoulder seat belt, NEVER secure a child in a booster seat with only a lap belt. From the age of 8 until they reach their 16th birthday, children must be restrained in a seat belt when they ride in the back seat. Front seat passengers must be properly restrained at all times, regardless of age. Children 12 years and younger should ride in the back seat. By simply buckling up your child in the back seat reduces his/her risk of death by 33%. *It is recommended that booster seats be used until your child is 4 foot 9 inches tall or weighs 100 pounds.

the driver is charged with the responsibility of requiring every occupant 17 years of age and younger to wear a safety belt or be secured in a child restraint system

In Illinois abandonment of a child is considered when a parent fails to pay child support or visit a child. This is determined on a case by case basis, and abandonment occurs within months to a year.

**There is no law in Connecticut that states that kids must be in the rear seat.Connecticut child restraint laws state that1.) younger than 1 year or less than 20 pounds: must be in a rear-facing seat2.) 1-6 years old and less than 60 pounds: must be in a child-restraint system (includes booster seat)3.) 7-15 years old and more than 60 pounds: must be in an adult-restraint**That answer is for a child restraint.To sit in the front seat you must be atleast 13 years old . It is wise not to let a child ride in the front seat at all until the child is able to drive themselves around. The impact of an airbag alone can kill a child. But, it is relativly more safe at the age of 13.

If you add the child as a driver on the policy.

In Illinois, a parent cannot leave a child under the age of 13 completely unsupervised for more than 24 hours. If they do so, it is considered child abandonment.

A child under the age of six weighing less than 60 pounds may ride in the front seat of a vehicle when: * There is no rear seat or the rear seats are either side-facing jump seats or rear-facing seats. * The child passenger restraint system cannot be installed properly in the rear seat. * All rear seats are already occupied by children under the age of 12 years. * A medical reason requires the child to ride in the front seat. A child may not ride in the front seat of an airbag-equipped vehicle if the child: * Is under one year of age. * Weighs less than 20 pounds. * Is riding in a rear-facing child passenger restraint system.

4 The answer is NOT based on age but on the height and weight of your child. If your child is over 40lbs he/she can transition to a booster seat with lap/ shoulder restraint.

Only if the court orders it. There should be a legal restraint order. Contact your attorney.

Child abandonment, or the act of leaving a child unsupervised for an extended period of time jeopardizing their safety is a very serious crime in Illinois. Such an act is regulated by the Illinois Criminal Code and is considered a felony. Punishment can include incarceration and large fines.

For the child to choose where to live the child have to be 18 years old.

In the state of Illinois, the legal age to leave a child home alone is 14. Illinois is one of only 13 states that have a latch key law on the books.

Children in the state of Illinois can not be left home alone until the age of 14. When a child is left at home without an adult caretaker in Illinois, the parents or guardian can be charged with child endangerment.

In most states and cities, yes. Unless law for the whole country says so or if it is a law in your city, then it will be perfectly fine, but dangerous all the same.
