When you or your visitors are traveling around Arizona with children, it’s important to know the laws regarding children’s car seat safety and requirements.

Children’s Car Safety
When traveling with children, safety becomes one’s utmost priority. Car crashes are at the top of the list of the deaths of children ages 1-12 in the United States. With laws and regulations that are in place when traveling around Arizona, there are more aspects that you ought to consider whenever you’re traveling with kids.
As mandated by law, the state of Arizona requires all children under 8 years old and under 4’9” to be properly secured in a child safety seat. These include infant car seats, convertible car seats, and booster seats, which are federally-approved safety devices. In short, if you’re traveling with children, you need to have child car seats in Arizona, even when taking taxis and rideshares.
What Are the Penalties Involved?
For those not following the precautionary measures for children’s car seats, there is a fine of up to $176 for violation of Arizona State Law 28-907. While this fine is troublesome, the worst situation involves the potential harm to childrens’ safety.
