    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Child Passenger Protection Act is amended by
changing Section 4 as follows:
    (625 ILCS 25/4)  (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 1104)
    Sec. 4. When any person is transporting a child in this
State under the age of 8 years in a non-commercial motor
vehicle of the first division, any truck or truck tractor that
is equipped with seat safety belts, any other motor vehicle of
the second division with a gross vehicle weight rating of 9,000
pounds or less, or a recreational vehicle on the roadways,
streets or highways of this State, such person shall be
responsible for providing for the protection of such child by
properly securing him or her in an appropriate child restraint
system. The parent or legal guardian of a child under the age
of 8 years shall provide a child restraint system to any person
who transports his or her child.
    When any person is transporting a child in this State who
is under the age of 2 years in a motor vehicle of the first
division or motor vehicle of the second division weighing 9,000
pounds or less, he or she shall be responsible for properly
securing the child in a rear-facing child restraint system,
unless the child weighs 40 or more pounds or is 40 or more
inches tall.
    For purposes of this Section and Section 4b, "child
restraint system" means any device which meets the standards of
the United States Department of Transportation designed to
restrain, seat or position children, which also includes a
booster seat.
    A child weighing more than 40 pounds may be transported in
the back seat of a motor vehicle while wearing only a lap belt
if the back seat of the motor vehicle is not equipped with a
combination lap and shoulder belt.
