Car crashes are the number one killer of children ages 1 to 12 in the United States.
Arizona law requires all children under 8 years old and under 4’9” to be properly secured in a child safety seat. Child safety seats include infant seats, convertible seats, forward-facing seats or other federally-approved safety devices. The seat must meet appropriate height and weight specifications for the child. There is a fine of up to $176 for violation of Arizona State Law 28-907.
Certified child passenger safety technicians are also available to help you with safety checks and installation help. Safety checks are held at several different locations and are by appointment only. Please see our Tucson Area Car Seat Fitting Stations for a list of agencies and phone numbers to schedule appointments. For more information, contact Safe Kids Pima County at (520) 324-2783.
