    Car Booster Seats Cut Injury Risk for Kids

    I saw a link to this article at WebMD on clek's twitter account. I thought maybe that the info was already known (as in, I thought there was a previous study looking at boosters for the 4-8 year old range, which is what this article is talking about), but I guess it's an article about a new study published online yesterday in Pediatrics. (The link goes to the abstract; the PDF of the full article is available on a link on that page.)
