Booster Seats for Kids

The second new seat belt law in a month goes into effect Wednesday. The new law requires booster seats for kids ages 8 and under and standing less than under 4 feet 9 inches.

Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl tells KLKS News, the devices will do a better job protecting kids in an accident. He says regular seat belts don't as well on young people as they do on adults.

Sheriff Dahl says his deputies will be educating the driving public on their use.

Just recently, state law was changed to allow law enforcement to pull over motorists not wearing a seat belts as a primary offense.
