"Car Seat Rules Target Kids Up To 8 Years Old"

 

Parents hit area children's stores to buy booster seats after a tough state law went into effect yesterday, setting new rules for securing kids younger than 8 in cars.

 

"The state has studied this issue and consulted with medical experts and determined that there is a benefit to requiring children of a certain age and size to use a booster seat," said David Procopio, spokesman for the Massachusetts State Police.

 

Dr. Inger Rosner, shopping yesterday at Magic Beans in Brookline, said the new rules are safer for children.
