Not meeting the four foot, 10-inch height requirement, six-year-old Amy Grimes will now be sitting in a booster seat in accordance with the new state law.
Kelsey Zormeier is one of the children who will be impacted by the new booster-seat law. The five-year-old had no problem buckling up last week. The new law, which requires children between ages four and eight, goes into effect on Aug. 2.
One of the best ways to keep children smiling, like Parker,
foreground, and Derek Hays, is to make sure their car safety seats
are secure. To make sure yours is used properly, SafeKids Tucson is
offering a free event this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at Target,
4040 N. Oracle Road.

(BPT) - - Four million babies are born in the United States each year and that means more than 4 million new car seats are being installed. While great strides have been made to ensure that every infant rides in a car seat, unfortunately, parents are making five critical, but fixable, mistakes when using car seats, according to new data announced by Safe Kids Worldwide and the General Motors Foundation.

On Jan. 22 at 6:30 p.m., members of the Oro
Valley Police Community Action Team pulled over a car near Magee
and Oracle roads after noticing some suspicious activity. C.A.T.
squad members saw four people going in and out of business and then
returning to their vehicles. After the men left the area, police
stopped the vehicle. During the stop, one of the passengers said he
didn't have any identification. When he was asked to step out of
the vehicle, the man attempted to run away after police noticed a
wallet on his car seat. The subject tried to run across Oracle Road
but was hit by a vehicle, after which he started to run toward
officers. The officers then shot the man with a Taser. The man said
he ran because he knew he was going back to prison. A search of the
car turned up a pistol under the seat where the subject was
sitting, a mask, gloves and a meth pipe. The man was taken to
University Medical Center and found to have a felony warrant from
the Department of Corrections. Two of the other subjects had
non-extraditable warrants and all three were released. The man who
ran was booked on the felony warrant along with a weapons
violation. An Oro Valley officer received minor injuries to the
face during the incident.
