Gov. Steve Beshear signed a new booster seat bill into law on June 15, requiring children younger than nine years old and between 40 and 57 inches tall be secured in a booster seat. The law went into effect June 24.
The bill requires law enforcement officers to issue citations with a $30 fine, although no court costs will be assessed. In addition, violators will have the option to purchase a booster seat instead of paying the fine.
