Kentucky booster seat requirements for children changed in June

Children may have to stay in booster seats while riding inside automobiles along the roads of Kentucky for a little while longer, as the new law, which began implementation during the fourth week of June, mandates that children under eight and with a height between 40 and 57 inches must remain in booster seats, according to Tristate Homepage.

Trooper Corey King of the Kentucky State Police said that booster seats increase the safety of children in vehicles because their hip bones can be secured, and the shoulder belt will directly fit with their shoulders.
