TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Local law enforcement is offering an event and information about child safety seat requirements during this Child Passenger Safety Week.

TPD is partnering with Target stores, Safe Kids Pima County and Tucson Medical Center to host a car seat check on Saturday, June 28 in the Target parking lot at 4040 N. Oracle Road from 8 to 11 a.m. TPD Nationally Certified Car Seat Technicians will make sure car seats are installed properly and can answer questions about car seats, booster seats and child passenger safety.

Arizona's child restraint law requires children under age 5 to sit in a federally approved child safety seat. Children between 5 and 8-years-old who are shorter than 4'9" tall must also be seated in a booster seat. TPD officers said law enforcement can stop a vehicle on that violation.

TPD says Traffic Enforcement Officers will concentrate their efforts on seat belt and car seat usage laws this week, though a driver cannot be stopped for a seatbelt violation because it is considered a secondary violation in Arizona. However, someone pulled over for another violation and who is not wearing a seatbelt can be cited for the seatbelt violation.
