Riverside County Sheriff's Department Press Release

Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Robert Grmusha

File # N/A

Details:

Moreno Valley, Calif. – The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Moreno Valley Station, reminds everyone when it comes to selecting the right car seat for your child, one size does not fit all. There are three types of car seats: rear-facing, forward-facing, and the booster, with each best suited to protect a child based on their age and size. To learn more about finding and using the correct car seat, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

California law requires all children under 2 years old to ride in a rear-facing car seat, unless the child is 40 or more pounds or is 40 or more inches tall. Parents are encouraged to keep your child in rear- and forward-facing seats as long as possible. 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.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly half of car seats (46%) are misused.

Child Passenger Safety Week concludes with National Seat Check Saturday on September 24th. To search for car seat programs in your county, visit the OTS website. You may also contact your local CHP Area Office to schedule a free child safety seat inspection.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
