New booster seat ratings released

The tests were conducted by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. The institute found that the majority of the tested seats can provide good protection, but not in as many cases as the top-rated, "best bet" seats. Eleven received the lowest rating of "not recommended" by the institute.

A well-fitting seat should put the lap portion of the seat belt flat across a child's upper thigh and the shoulder belt at mid-shoulder.
