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.
