Children ages from 5 to 8 would benefit from having a booster seat law in place for every State according to a federal safety board. Only Arizona, South Dakota, and Florida do not require booster seats for children for children from ages 5 through 8 years old. According to a study conducted by the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the use of booster seats lowers the risk of injury by 59 percent as compared to children of this age group who used regular safety / seat belts alone.
