Child Safety Belts

NPR's Emily Harris reports that child safety advocates testified before a congressional committee yesterday that children between the ages of five and nine need additional seatbelt protection. They recommended that parents be required by law to install booster seats for children who are too big for infant car seats but not big enough to be protected by regular seat belts.
