Unaware of Laws, Many Parents Not Using Booster Seats for Older Children
Date:3/17/2010

seats. Laws about booster seat use came into play in the last decade, so parents talking to other parents about what's safest for their child may not be getting the right information. Using a booster seat until 4-feet-9 is ideal."

The January 2010 poll asked 706 parents with children, ages 4 - 8, about their use of booster seats and whether or not they know about their state laws regarding booster seats.

Overall, 76 percent of kids, ages 4 - 8, are using booster seats. However, 51 percent of parents do not know their state booster seat law, and 20 percent think they know the law but are wrong about the age requirement.

Booster seats are known to reduce the risk of injury in car crashes by as much as 50 percent.

Yet nearly 200 kids, ages 4 - 8, need emergency care in the United States each day for injuries suffered in car crashes. And every other day, one of these children dies from those injuries.
