Many parents make the mistake of taking their kids out of their child safety seat too soon and letting them use seat belts before they're tall enough or old enough for seat belts to fit properly.

Beginning Tuesday, that mistake could be a costly one.

On June 1, a new state law passed last year goes into effect. It requires all children under eight years of age to ride in a child safety seat or booster seat. The only exception is if the child is taller than 4 feet 9 inches.

Violators face fines of up to $250, plus court costs.
