    This is a question from a cousin, she is going next May with her four and half year old son,
    she is wondering what the law is in Florida for children car seats,
    Travel agent has told her she doesn't need one but hire company have said she does.
    can anyone help please.

    Here's the Florida statute on the subject:

    Basically, for a 4 1/2 year old, the seat belt complies with the law. Although the child should be in the back seat. However, the FHP child safety brochure indicates that children of that age should have a booster seat. This allows them to be in a position where the seat belt can fit best.

    Tom :)macwave:... hope this helps!)

    We went last year and brought a trunking booster seat. It was great because it doubles up as a rucksack, so we packed all my sons stuff for the flight in it. Then when we got to the hire car it was ready to just put in the car.

    We once flew with our full size car seat (thinking, in part it would be more comfortable for the boy on the plane). NEVER again. What a miserable experience that was! A booster seat, maybe but never a full size car seat again.

    The item you describe sounds really neat! Not sure I can picture it, but it sure does seem travel friendly. :yes:
