The number one killer of children in Arizona is motor vehicle crashes. One simple item that could help save countless children is a properly
installed child safety seat.
Did you know that 4 out of every 5 child car seats are installed incorrectly?!
Did you know that one third of children are riding in the wrong restraints for their age and size?
If you see an unbuckled child in a moving vehicle, call 1-800-505-BABY. Be prepared to provide:
1. the license number and state on the car
2. the city where the violation occurred
3. the location of the child (front seat, driver's lap, etc.)
The vehicle owner will receive a letter saying that an unbuckled child was observed, and that the law
requires children under five to be properly secured. The letter is not a ticket, but serves as a chance to
inform the owner of the vehicle about keeping children safe in the car.
And sent to us, from our friend Whitney at the Woodland Public Library, is another extremely useful
link for child safety seats. You can check it out right here:
Thank you very much Whitney!
