In California children over a certain age are allowed to transition from the booster seat to an adult seat belt. Ages 8-15 may use the adult seat belt, provided the belt fits properly. To make sure the fit is correct, check that:
When buying a child car seat, you need to make sure it fits your child and fits your car, and also that it is straightforward to install and use. There are so many to choose from, so shop around and check reviews and ratings carefully to make sure the seat meets crash performance standards and is user-friendly. Use the NHTSA five-star rating system to determine which seat is best for you and your child. While all seats in the list conform to Federal Safety Standards, this system evaluates ease of use, that is: labels, instructions, ease of installation and ease of securing the child in the seat: https://www.nhtsa.gov/risky-driving/seat-belts
It is also a good idea to have certified technicians inspect the seat for you, and you can normally have this done free of charge. To locate the inspection organization nearest you, use the following link: http://www.safercar.gov/cpsApp/cps/index.htm
In California there are also seat belt requirements for use in school buses. Seat belts have been found to reduce the risk of death and serious injury in older children by 50%.

"Loved this online course. My only peeve is that I paid for the course up-front before starting to go through the lessons only to find out 10 minutes later that one of your online chat representatives offered me a discount code. Sadly, I was not able to retroactively apply this discount code to get a partial refund. Sad. :("
