    Default car seats

    hi all,
    I'll be traveling with my 2 1/2 year old from the states and wondering if car seats or booter seats are required for toddlers in the DR. I know they are in the states and may have to purchase one there in DR.
    Thx

    @ the risk of being a wisea$$, headlights and rearview mirrors are optional in this country, so a car seat is recommended for a toddler, but not a "requirement".

    If you are renting a car they should have one for you. ANother law to be aware of is that kids under 8 years old are not allowed to sit in the front seat here.

    Who cares if it is law or not. Put your baby in a car seat!

    I had a Geo tracker and was stopped and ticketed for having a lady with her 4 year old in the front. Amet said that it is illegal for anyone with less than 8 years to be in the front seat. Kid wasn't on my lap!

    Most rental companies will rent you a car seat too, if I remember correctly it was an additional $5-10 per day.

    Most airlines will let you check a car seat and stroller at no extra charge, check that out! Our daughter did that when she came down with our grandsons.
