Just a reminder that the new Georgia car seat law goes into effect tomorrow. All children under the age of 8 are required to be in a booster seat. Some children may be exempt if they are over 4'9 or have a written statement from a doctor based on a medical condition. If there are shoulder belts in the car, then weight does not matter, just the height and age requirement. If there are no shoulder available belts to secure a booster or child seat, then children must use a lap belt.
First convictions carry a $50 fine and 1 point. All subsequent convictions are $100 and 2 points.
