Boosters better than belts for kids who are 40 to 80 pounds Blue Grass Auto Safety Founda- tion says diligent parents that prop- erly restrain infants and toddlers in child safety seats too often skip a step when it comes to properly pro- tecting older children riding in vehi- cles. "The forgotten step is to buckle children weighing between 40 and 80 pounds into booster seats designed to position adult seat belts correctly and safely around the child," says Lilla S. Mason, Blue Grass Auto Safety Foundation Director. "Booster seats are better than belts because children that are not large enough to correctly fit an adult-sized seat belt remain at risk of fatal injury from shoulder straps that cut across their necks and lap belts that ride up onto their soft bellies. AAA is joining with other safety- minded organizations during Nation- al Child Passenger Safety Week, February I 1-18, to call attention to the need for increased use of child booster seats. According to Blue Grass Auto Club Safety Foundation, the easiest way to know when children are large enough for an adult seat belt is to evaluate whether their child can sit with their back straight up against the seat cushion while their knees bend over the seat without slouch- ing. Restraint use tot children from ages one to age four is 91 percent, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. How- ever, restraint use plummets to 69 percent for children age five to 15-- and most children five to eight are improperly protecled with an adult- sized seat belt, instead of a booster. Booste| scats can be obtained at major retailers usually less than $60. All bo,ter seats are required to meet federal safety standards, regardless ofpE ice. "l'hey make great gifts from grandparents or family friends. One of the biggest challenges to u ;!, a booster seat is child accep- tance, says Mason. The Foundation offers several key tips for choosing and using the right booster seat. From an early age, explain to yourg children that they will use a booster seat when they are older. When it is lime to switch to a booster seat, show children how the booster seat offers them better protection lha|l all adult seal. Make sure the seat fits your child's weight and height. Iry installing a scat in your vehicle before purchasing it. Maim sure it fits the vehicle seat and re- straint system. Always consult your owner's manual before purchasing and in- stalling a child safety seat. Most will offer specific instructions and list special equipment needed for proper installation of a child safety seat. AAA also recommends that all children under the age of 13 ride in the back seat. "The safest place for a young passenger is in the back seat, properly restrained," says Lilla Ma- son. "Unless there are no alterna- tives, the back is where it's at." When there is no other alternative but to place a child over the age of one in the front seat, push the seat all the way back and make sure the child is safely fastened in the appropriate child restraint.
