Booster Seat Law Enacted in Arizona

Beginning on August 2nd a new state law will take effect that mandates all children between the ages of 5 to 8 who are shorter than 4′ 10″ must be secured in a booster seat. Previously Arizona has been one of only three states without a law requiring booster seats for this age group. The statistics show that shorter children without booster seats suffer more serious injuries and more fatalities as well. Seat belts in cars are simply not designed for a child’s stature and the pressure of the seat belts themselves during an impact falls less on strong bone areas of the body. Under the new law police officers will be able to stop a car if a child isn’t properly secured and the fine for the offense is $50. Booster seats are available for free to low-income families through the Pima County Health Department. More information can be found at their website: http://www.pimahealth.org..
