While riding in a vehicle, children under the age of six need to be properly restrained by an approved child safety seat.


However, additional conditions apply:





    Regardless of age, children weighing over 80 pounds or those who can can sit erect against the car seat and bend their legs over the seat's edge are not required to be in a booster seat.

SC Child Car Seat Law

In general, children under six years old cannot ride in the front seat. But, this stipulation is waived if the vehicle doesn't have a back seat, or if the back seat is occupied by other children under the age of six.
