Eek that was me on my wedding day at 19 years old. Not being snarky, I really do think I need an adult booster seat. I'm 5 feet tall. I wonder if there is such a thing?

I think, since you are an adult and your bones are mature and all that jazz, anything that raises you up a bit should work. You don't necessarily need a booster with armrests and everything. When I first started driving I needed a stiff couch pillow to lift me up to the right height. Goodness knows I could've used a regular booster until 11 or 12 easily, but we didn't know of such things back then.

My mom kept me in a lbb until I was 10 or 11...but we had an old dodge 12 passenger van with only lap belts. She was ahead of her time, she had my Dad bolt my baby seat to the floor of the van in 1980 because it was the safest thing she could think to do at the time!

I'm 5'2" now and I'm okay height wise for driving but my legs are so short I am closer to the wheel (and airbag) than I would like to be.
