Is a infant/toddler car seat needed in Terceira?

I will be going to Terceira in June with a 1yr old from Canada & was wondering if a child car seat is needed for her while we are there & is it required by law there? If so can somebody please provide me with all the details? Have been going crazy trying to find information on this for weeks.

Thank you so much for your time and help! :)

It falls under Pgese law. Here's a link to the information from one of the car rental companies:

Hope that helps.

Yes, it's required by law. So you either bring one with you or rent it while in Terceira. If you're going to rent a car then mention that you need one.
