Booster seats now mandatory in New Brunswick
« on: May 05, 2008, 11:46:51 AM »
A new law that makes booster seats in vehicles mandatory for small children came into effect in New Brunswick on Thursday.

Under the law, which was passed in December, children younger than nine must be strapped into a booster seat with a seatbelt until they weigh 80 pounds and four feet nine inches.

Parents who don't comply with the law will be fined $172.50 for each violation.

Safety experts say it's about time the province introduced such a law.

I guess all I can say  is , Its about time!< Ontario has had this law for a couple years or so... i bought all kinds of booster seats, and even bought a new van that has  2 built in baby seats in it, so I can accomodate children safely  and as per the law in my vehicle.
