Although Arizona law requires all people riding in a vehicle to wear a seatbelt for protection in the event of an Arizona car accident, the law is more stringent when it comes to children.
According to ARS 28-907, no child under age five should ever be driven around in a car unless they are belted in with a safety device appropriate for their age, height and weight. The same law requires children over the age of five but under age eight and under the height of four feet and nine inches to also ride in an appropriate child safety belt system. The minimum fine for violating this ordinance is fifty dollars. While law enforcement cannot stop a vehicle for adult violations of the seatbelt law, drivers can be stopped if a police officer believes that a child is not appropriately buckled in, even if they’ve committed no other violations.
Like any parent, you’re scouring the Internet searching for ways to keep your kids safe this holiday season. You’ve read the articles about slip and fall accidents on the ice, getting hit by cars, and contracting pneumonia or serious bouts of the flu. You know the rules about hand washing, nose blowing, and other ways of preventing the spread of germs. But there’s one more culprit out there that you might have to worry about this holiday season: food poisoning.
Food poisoning can happen just about anywhere. It can happen at home, school, daycare, the afterschool program, the babysitter’s, restaurants, and other locations where your child comes into contact with foods and drinks that have been prepared by another person. Food poisoning is caused by bacteria such as E. Coli that spreads when food is prepared on unclean counters, with unclean hands, or with unclean utensils. It also occurs in undercooked foods or when foods are cross-contaminated in an effort to make the process go faster.
