I have been looking for the national standards for booster seats, and can not find anything that gives me a straight answer.

My almost 8 year old daughter is getting made fun of because we still make her ride in a booster seat, none of her classmate have rode in a booster seat since they were 3 or 4 years old. People in this area put their kids in booster seats around 2.5-3 years and quit using them shortly aft that. I know she is the only one in her class to ride in a booster seat but I drive A LOT and do not feel safe with her not in one. I commute to work with both of my babies 30 miles one way. Then after school I have another 20 minute drive to go to the closest town to run errands! The highway I drive on has has several nasty fatality wrecks over the past 4-5 years.

At one point I had heard that a child had to ride in a booster seat till they were 8 yrs old OR 4' 9" tall.

Is this true? She is ready to be out of the seat, but I want her to be safe....HELP!!
