Child Passenger Safety Week is September 19-25

San Rafael, CA – As part of Child Passenger Safety Week, the San Rafael Police Department wants to make sure your child is in the right child safety seat.

Child Passenger Safety Week is September 19-25 and focuses on educating parents and caregivers about the importance of choosing, installing, and using the correct car seat.

“Your plate is always full as a parent, but the goal for this week is to offer parents and caregivers the time to make sure their child is as safe as possible in the car,” Motor Officer Jordan said. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children, and nearly half of car seats (46%) are misused.

California law requires a child to be properly secured in a safety seat until they are at least 8 years of age.  Children 8 and older, who are at least 4 feet, 9 inches in height, may ride in the back seat of a vehicle in a properly fitted safety belt. Children under the age of 2 must ride rear-facing or until they reach 40 pounds or 40 inches in height. 

To search for car seat programs in your county, the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) has a dropdown menu on the OTS website. You may also contact your Local CHP Area Office to schedule a free safety seat inspection.
