In Ohio, parents, caregivers, schools, and day care providers should be aware of a new law that recently went into full enforcement mode. Children from the ages of 4 to 8 years old must be placed in a booster seat unless the child is 4 Feet 9 Inches tall. Children from the ages of 8 to 15 years of age must wear a seat belt. Safety advocates are pleased with the passage and enforcement of this law. With or without a law in effect, parents, schools, and day care providers should think of safety first when transporting a child. Seat belts, infant seats, and booster seats can help prevent serious personal injuries and even death resulting from an automobile accident.
