My son is 7 years old.
At what age can he ride in a car without a car/booster seat?
where can I get this information from?
When he can pass the 5 step test
Boosters Are For Big Kids
Most kids need to ride in a booster seat from about age 4 until age 10-12.
If your child isn’t using a booster, try the simple test below the next time you ride together in the car. You may find that your child is not yet ready to use a safety belt without a booster.
The 5-Step Test.
1. Does the child sit all the way back against the auto seat? 2. Do the child's knees bend comfortably at the edge of the auto seat? 3. Does the belt cross the shoulder between the neck and arm? 4. Is the lap belt as low as possible, touching the thighs? 5. Can the child stay seated like this for the whole trip?
For best protection, all children should ride in the back seat until they are ready to drive. It's twice as safe as the front seat.
he weighs 50lbs and is 50 inches
Quoting alexsmomaubrys2:How tall is he? How much does he weigh? Those are more important then age. My son is 7 and no where near getting out of his booster.
