Car seat safty for kids

A new study in the journal "Pediatrics" said once your kids are too old for baby car seats you should upgrade to a booster.

For more than 10 years, researchers looked at deadly car crashes in all 50 states.

States that required booster seats for four and 5-year-olds saw fatality rates drop from 5.7 to 4.2. States that mandated booster seats up to age six saw fatality rates drop from 2.3 to 1.5.

The study recommends boosters for kids between 4-7.
