Booster Seats - Step 3
In Arizona, motor vehicle collisions are the most common cause of preventable deaths of children. Using a safety seat drastically reduces a child's risk of injury or death.
How and When to Use a Booster Seat
Your child can move from a forward-facing car seat with a 5-point harness, to a booster seat when they exceed the height or weight limits of the forward-facing car seat and are at least 4 years old.
Children should stay in a booster seat, and in the back seat, until they are 4 feet, 9 inches tall. Only use a booster seat with a lap and shoulder seat belt.
