The 2022 National Child Passenger Safety Week campaign will be conducted from September 18, 2022, through September 24, 2022.  The focus of this safety campaign is to raise awareness and urge all parents and caregivers to ensure their child passenger is riding in the appropriate car seat based on the child’s age and size.

Arizona law requires that all children under the age of 8 must be secured with a federally approved child safety seat or device. Experts recommend keeping children rear-facing until the child is 3 years of age. Check the weight restriction on your specific seat. After that, a forward-facing seat can be used. Children under the age of 8 or 4’ 9” or shorter must use a federally approved safety seat or device when riding in a vehicle.

Child restraint systems must be correctly installed according to Manufacturer Guidelines. When installing your car seats, follow the instructions and recommendations for your specific car seat and your specific vehicle.

Lake Havasu City Police Officers will be participating in this national effort by conducting enhanced enforcement of child passenger safety laws to help ensure the safety of young children traveling on roadways in our community.

The national “Child Passenger Safety Week” campaign is conducted by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in coordination with law enforcement agencies and other organizations.
