Bronx Safety City offers help to residents who cannot afford booster seats

At Bronx Safety City, residents learned about a new child safety law Friday that will go into effect next week. The amended child restraint law will require booster seats for children 7 years of age and younger while riding in a vehicle. New York State Department of Transportation (DOT) educators were on hand to inform attendees of current safety laws and work with those who may not be able to afford a booster seat. The DOT is offering outreach programs to obtain a booster seat through hospitals and WIC centers. They also want to remind Bronx residents that the amended law will go into effect on March 27.
