It is mandatory for kids under 4 years to travel with car seats. However, according to the Traffic Police Chief's statement, the child's size and weight are the ones that are used in determining whether a child needs a car seat or not. The car seat is required for children to ensure that they are secured and safe.

it's not illegal if you don't get caught
Yes it is mandatory. The child must be 6 years older or above a certain weight. You will receive a ticket and could possibly be charged with child endangerment. Have a safe trip!
My seven year old niece still sits in a childs restraint booster seat in the car because she is still under the size/weight required by LAW.
