The State of Florida has been changing traffic laws and fees a lot lately. There has been great debate as to whether the changes are for public safety or to raise money for the cash-strapped state. According to various news agencies, another state legislator is proposing a bill to change a traffic law in the name of safety. State Senator Thad Altman has proposed that booster seats be mandatory for children up to the age of seven. The current law requires a child in a car be restrained in a booster seat up to the age of four. He and booster seat saleswoman Barbara Hill are in support of the changes.
According to the proposition of this legislator, almost 200 children between the ages of 4-7 have been killed in Florida car crashes this past decade. They add almost 1,000 more have been injured.
