You are going to have to keep your kids in booster seats longer. Governor Brewer made it official signing the bill just yesterday.
Children through the age of 7, who are not more than 4 ft. 9 have to be in a booster seat.
If you don't follow the new law you could face a $50 fine, but you wont have to pay it if you do get a child safety seat installed in your car afterwards.
AAA says this is a big safety protection for children and only two states lack similar laws. Arizona legislators blocked this law before because of costs to parents and government intrusion concerns.
The new law will not go into affect until August 20 of this year.
