Child Booster Seat Law Takes Affect Today

Heads up Mom and Dad. Wisconsin’s new Child Booster Seat Law takes affect today. See the fact sheet with diagram from the DOT.
Written warnings will be issued instead of citations for first violations during a grace period from June 1 until December 31, 2006. On January 1, 2007, law enforcement officers will begin issuing citations for violations.
Note also that there was a change to mandatory safety belt law. Under the new law, drivers may be cited for allowing passengers of any age to be unbelted in their vehicle (The new law removes a previous provision that did not make the driver responsible for unbelted passengers age 16 or older.)
