WATCH: Pennsylvania's new car seat law has some kicking and screaming

Child Safety Car Seats

This 23-month-old little boy refused to cooperate with Mike Jerrick, a co-host of Fox 29's 'Good Day Philadelphia' show, during a segment on Pennsylvania's new child seat laws that aired last week.

Starting Friday, Pennsylvania will require that children under the age of two be put in a rear-facing car seat until they outgrow the height and weight recommendations of the seat set by the manufacturer.

Pennsylvania is the fourth state to adopt the more stringent safety requirement, which passed unanimously in the state Senate and by a 175-20 vote in the House. The current law does not require small children to be rear-facing in the passenger restraint system.

During a segment on Pennsylvania's new child seat laws that aired last week on Fox 29's 'Good Day Philadelphia' show, a 23-month-old boy refused to cooperate with co-host Mike Jerrick.

Police officers will dole out verbal warnings for the first year, and then issue citations with a $75 fine.

Mike Jerrick, co-host of "Good Morning Philadelphia" on Fox29, set out to demonstrate the new law, but 23-month-old Noah wasn’t having any of it — first ripping down a trimming on the car door and eventually just sliding out of the seat and escaping to the driver’s seat where he appeared to be a natural, taking over the wheel and even flashing the camera an adorable grin.
