If you have not heard already, Under California law starting on January 1st, children must use car seats until they are 8 years old or 4-feet-9 inches tall, a change from the previous requirement of 6 years or 60 pounds. This means, there are many 6 year olds who have already “graduated” from booster seats who now need to get back into car seats. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that a child should remain in a booster seat until they are tall enough for seat belts to fit comfortably across the lap and shoulder. Parents may receive a fine of more than $475 and a point on the driving record for not complying! If you have questions or need help, call NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 or call 866-SEATCHECK (866-732-8243).
