In our Facebook story of the day, you wanted to know when booster seats should be used for kids while driving.

Children in Georgia must be in a booster seat or child safety seat until they are eight years old or 4 feet, 9 inches tall.

The State of Georgia implemented the booster seat law in July 2011 to bring added protection to children to avoid them from being seriously injured while in a vehicle.

Anyone who is pulled over in the State of Georgia can be issued a citation costing up to fifty dollars or more; this offense can also count as one point on your driver's license.

Children riding on school buses, taxi cabs, or public transportation are exempt from the law.

If a parent has a written note from a doctor or release stating the child has a particular condition which prevents them from being restrained, they will be exempt.
