New booster seat ratings released and many get top award

Out of 17, 2 are not recommended

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says for the first time it's awarded a record number of booster seats their highest rating.

Of 17 new- for-2012 booster seats identified by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 15 received the organization's top rating of Best Bet.

Two boosters are not recommended because they don't provide proper belt fit, and consumers are advised to avoid them.
