Older children who are not big enough to ride in the car without any seat assistance will need a booster seat. Once they are reach the height of 4’9, they can take the safety belt fit test which requires them to sit back in their seat to see where the belt rests across their body. Kids under the age of twelve should always ride in the back seat. Remember to set a good example; if parents are wearing seat belts, children will want to as well.
