I was really moved when I came across this Utah Primary Children's Medical Centre campaign on the need for children to use booster seats until they are tall enough to use an adult seat belt.  The video only last 8 minutes but could have a life changing effect if you take notice, take action and ensure your children use a booster seat if they need to.   I appreciate that children don't like them and want to grow up fast these days and be big enough not to need the booster seat which they probably associate with still being a baby.   However the seat is there for a reason and could save them from very serious injury which could have a profound effect on their future.

Do you doubt the benefit of booster seats?
