Child Passenger Safety

Our technicians have found that the advancement of car seat safety has created a more complex installation procedure, typically causing improper installation. To help keep our children properly restrained, certified car seat technicians educate and guide parents through the correct installation process of their child’s car seat.

  • Seats are inspected for the residents of Florence and the surrounding community, by appointment only.
  • We ask that you clean your vehicle and the car seat prior to arriving for your scheduled appointment. A clean vehicle will allow our technicians easier access for installation, which will also make it easier to show you how to effectively install your car seat in the future.
  • If you or your children are sick, as a courtesy we request that you cancel your appointment and reschedule.

To request an appointment with a Car Seat Technician, fill out the form below:

Did you know?

  • The number one killer of children in Arizona is motor vehicle crashes
  • One simple item could help save countless children is a properly installed child safety seat
  • 4 out of every 5 child car seats are installed incorrectly
  • One third of children are riding in the wrong restraints for their age and size
  • Over 1/3 of children use the wrong restraint for their size and age
  • Children 5-8 years old should be riding in belt-positioning booster seats

If you see an unbuckled child in a moving vehicle, call 1-800-505-BABY, be prepared to provide:

  • the license number and state on the car
  • the city where the violation occurred,
  • the location of the child (front seat, driver’s lap, etc.)

The vehicle owner will receive a letter saying that an unbuckled child was observed, and that the law requires children under five to be properly secured. The letter is not a ticket, but serves as a chance to inform the owner of the vehicle about keeping children safe in the car.
