What do you mean? Laws? Usage guidelines? Age/weight/height recommendations?

Re: rules for booster seat usage?

You might be thinking of the 5 step test, which is how you can determine if a kid is ready to graduate from a booster and use the adult seatbelt alone.

As for how kids should behave while in a booster, in order for a belt-positioning (as opposed to harnessed) booster to be a safe choice, the following needs to happen:
*child is at least 4 years old (though a little older is usually better);
*child weighs at least 40 pounds (though I personally would be okay with a lighter child who was older, say 6-7 years old)
*the booster positions the seatbelt properly on the child - lap belt low on the lap, not up on the tummy, and shoulder belt crossing the collarbone, not cutting into the neck or sliding off the outside of the shoulder
*the child stays seated in the proper position the whole time he/she is in the car, including (if applicable) while sleeping

Does that help?
