A new child car seat law went into effect in New York State last week.
The Batavia Fire Department is reminding everyone that effective November 1st, any child under two years of age must be seated in a rear facing car seat.
Firemen say rear facing seats are best because they are equipped with a harness and a crash cradle that moves with the child to reduce stress on the back and spine.
A recent national study found that 90-percent of all car seats are installed incorrectly.
The Batavia City Fire Department encourages caregivers to have car seats checked. Batavia firemen are trained for this. Just call the city fire station and make an appointment.
