(KSL News) If you have a child between ages four and seven, you'll want to hear the results of a new study involving car safety seats.

In most states, laws state children over age four don't have to sit in car safety seats.

Researchers now hope their findings will encourage more states to make booster seats mandatory for children between ages four and seven.
