Study: Booster car seats put kids at risk

May 15, 2009 The findings in the May issue of accident analysis and prevention shows about two-thirds of children's booster car seats may be improperly installed or are being misused.

As a result, researchers say, booster seats are not protecting children because of user error. They say parents need to know how to safely place a child in a booster, supervise the buckling up and double check that the shoulder and lap belts restraining the children remain properly positioned during the drive.
