law helps keep our children safe
Booster seats help raise a child up to an adult’s sitting height, making seat belts more effective. Previously, the law required children ages 4-6 to use booster seats; however, most 7-year-old children are not big enough to be adequately secured by a vehicle’s lap and shoulder belt. That’s why, effective Nov. 24, 2009, all children under the age of 8 will be required to sit on a booster seat in a motor vehicle.
