Covenant helps parents get ready for new booster seat laws

Posted:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Covenant Health Systems worked to keep kids safe Saturday by hosting a free safety seat check. They helped parents make sure they buckle their kids in properly.

This comes just before the Texas Department of Public Safety starts enforcing violations for the new state booster seat laws passed by the Texas Legislature. The law requires all children who are younger than 8-years-old and shorter than 4'9" to ride in a booster seat.

The law went into effect on September 1st, and officers have been issuing warning since then.  Starting June 1st you could receive a fine of up to $250 if you don't have your kids in a booster seat.
