This photograph shows an infant boy asleep in his car seat. All states in the United States have car seat laws. In Iowa, the Child Restraint Law is to keep children safe in a motor vehicle. A child under the age of one and weighing less than 20 lbs. must be secured in a rear-facing child restraint system. A child age one up to six years old must be secured in a child restraint system.
