A new child restraint law went into effect Thursday.

The law requires children ages 5 to 7 and shorter than 4 feet 10 inches tall who are riding in a vehicle manufactured in 1972 or after to be restrained in a booster seat.

Previously, state law allowed children to ride with just a seatbelt after they turned 5.

The state still requires that children under 5 be properly secured in a child passenger restrain system.

Fines for those found in violation of the law will vary in each court.
