Car Seat Safety

Car Seat Safety

Arizona law requires all children under 8 years old and under 4'9” to be properly secured in a child safety seat. 

  1. Buying the right car seat. Your baby needs to ride in a rear-facing car seat as long as possible. When your child has outgrown that seat, you are ready for a forward-facing car seat. Get more details about buying the right car seat for your child.
  2. Installing your car seat. You’ll need to decide on using either the seat belt or lower anchors to secure your car seat. Both are safe, but don’t use them both at the same time. Once your child is forward facing, it is important to use the tether with the seat belt or lower anchors. Get more details about installing your car seat.
  3. Getting the right fit. A properly-fitted harness gives the best possible protection for your child. Here are more details about getting the right fit for your child.
  4. When to change your car seat. Look on the car seat label to make sure your child is still within the weight, height and age limits for that seat. Get details about when to change your car seat.

 

Never leave a child alone in a parked car for any period of time.
