On February 10, 2021, Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety (Advocates) and KidsAndCars.org sent a letter to the Florida Senate Committee on Transportation in support of Senate bill (SB) 380.  This measure requires children to remain in a booster seat until at least age six.  The letter also urged the Committee to further upgrade the law by extending the age requirement in the bill to eight and adding a height requirement of 57 inches before permitting a child to transition to the use of a seat belt in a rear seat.  To read the full letter CLICK HERE.
