Child Safety Seats
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Governor Jennifer Granholm has signed
legislation requiring all children who are both under age 8 and
shorter than 4-foot-9 to be fastened into booster seats.
The new measure takes effect July 1. Violators will face fines
of up to $65 per offense.
It adds to Michigan law requiring children under 4 to ride in a
child restraint system.
Sponsors of the legislation signed Thursday say most of the
children between 4 and 8 years old who are seriously injured in
auto accidents aren't restrained in a booster seat.
Michigan will become the 39th state to adopt an expanded booster
seat law.
