A new child safety seat law takes effect Wednesday in Kentucky.
The law requires children younger than 8 and between 40-57 inches tall to ride in a booster seat.
A ceremonial bill signing was held Monday for Kentucky's new, stricter vehicle booster seat law. But, enacting a new law doesn't guarantee parents will adhere to the stiffer guidelines.
Kentucky's vehicle booster seat law is getting an upgrade. Final approval came last night at the state Capital.
Child safety advocates have long sought modifications to Kentucky's vehicle booster seat law.
It appears such a change is headed toward final passage in the General Assembly. Current law requires children under age seven who are between 40 and 50 inches tall ride in a booster.
A bill that would increase safety requirements for minors in car booster seats has passed the Kentucky House.
