Does anyone out their live in Florida? I was wondering what the carseat laws are? Does a 5 year old need to sit in a car seat?
I think in Florida if they are over five you can use a booster seat or a shoulder/lap belt combo. In Kentucky it's based on the child's weight, not their age, so kids here have to be in a booster seat up to 80 pounds.
I live in Fl and over 4 you do not legally need to have your child in any restraint other than a seatbelt. All states are different, and the booster seat is always safer. Hope this helps.
