According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety more than half of the booster seats on sale this year earn top ratings for safety.

They ranked 31 new models and of those, 19 earned the top rating of "best bet."

A best bet rating means they correctly position a 4– to 8–year–old child to use the regular shoulder and lap belts in almost any car

Some of the brands rated "best bet" are Britax Parkway, Evenflo Emp, Evenflo Big Kid, and numerous seats made by Graco.
