With travel season blooming in Carbon County, officials at the Southeastern Utah District Health Department would like to remind local drivers about recent changes to child restraint laws.
The current law reads, the operator of a motor vehicle on a Utah highway shall provide for the protection of a person younger than eight years of age by using a child restraint device and booster. Children younger than eight are not required to be in a booster seat if they are at least 57 inches tall, at which point they should wear their lap and shoulder belt without the booster, according to the SEUDHD.
