A: Our KION Question came from Lucia in Salinas. She asked, "At what age is it legal to have a child as a passenger on a motorcycle?"
Here's the answer from the California Highway Patrol:
A child may ride as a passenger on a motorcycle when he/she is no longer required to be in a child restraint (car seat) and their feet can reach the passenger foot pegs. Failure to obey this could result in citations being issued for violations of 27360 of the California Vehicle Code (Child Passenger Restraint law) and 27800 of the Vehicle Code (Motorcycles - Passengers: Equipment and Usage). Additionally, depending on the circumstances, an officer could cite or arrest the adult for child endangerment.
Just for clarification, the child seat law currently states children shall be secured in a proper child restraint until the age of 6 or 60 pounds.
As of January 1st, that law will be modified to require child restraints be used up to the age of 8 or until a child reaches 4'9" in height.
