2005 Wisconsin Act 106
(effective date: June 1, 2006)
Under this act, s. 347.48(4)(am) is amended to require any child
between the ages of 4 and 8 to be secured in a booster seat while
traveling in a motor vehicle. Children who weigh more than 80 pounds
and are more than 4-feet 9-inches tall are exempt from this
requirement. Children who cannot be placed in a booster seat because
of a physical or medical condition or body size may also be exempt.
In addition, the act allows drivers to be cited for having unbelted
passengers of any age in their vehicle under s. 347.48(2m). While the
effective date of this act was June 1, 2006, there is a 6-month written
warning grace period for any violations.
