Road Injuries are the leading cause of preventable deaths and injuries to children in the United States. Buckling children in age and size appropriate car seats, booster seats and seat belts reduces the risk of serious and fatal injuries.
Butte County Public Health Kids in Safe Seats offers a free car/booster seat class for Butte County residents. The car seat distribution program is available for low income, Butte County residents.
There are a number of car seat fitting stations throughout Butte County. All fittings stations require an appointment.
Children under the age of 8 must be secured in a car seat or booster seat in the back seat. Children who are 8 years of age OR have reached 4' 9" in height may be secured by a safety belt in the back seat.
