GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - There's some encouraging news from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. They found booster seats are doing a much better job keeping kids safe, compared to just a few years ago.

In 2008, the Institute could only find 10 booster seats worthy of its "Best Bet" rating, and today, there are more than 50.

The sign of a good booster, is the belt not riding up on the stomach, and the shoulder belt fits snuggly across the center of the shoulder.

Boosters are generally intended for four to eight year olds, who weigh up to 80 pounds.

For a complete list of booster seats tested by the Insurance Institute, you can visit their website.
