I was pulled over a few months ago and received a ticket for Driving with an expired sticker, License not in my possesion, and a Car Seat Violation. I was giving a warning for all but the Car Seat Violation My 4 year old daughter was in a booster seat(not the high back type).
According to the officer she had to be 5 to be in a booster seat. Her Doctor as well as my hometown Police Department said she was fine in a booster seat because her height and weight were over the minimum requirements for such. (I was pulled over by state police).I explained this to the officer that was told by Town Police and her Pediatrician that she was OK for it, and he told me it didn't matter she had to be 5 years old. I have filed for a appeal for the ticket, am I in the right, that regardless of age if my daughters height and weight are over the limits for her high back, but fit in the regulations for a booster then it's legal? or does she have to be 5 years regardless of height and weight?
