Child Safety Seat Inspection
Each year, approximately 1,800 children who are less than 14 years of age lose their lives as the result of a motor vehicle crash. Another 280,000 children are injured.
Child safety seats, when properly installed, save lives. A study released by the National Safe Kids Campaign, however, reports that at least 85 percent of the 17,500 seats inspected were installed incorrectly. The most common misuses were the safety belt not holding the seat tightly and harness straps not being used properly.
The City of Scottsdale Public Safety personnel provide regular car seat inspections by appointment. Due to budget, there are limited dates for appointments. Please plan well in advance for your inspection.
To schedule your appointment, please fill out the request form.
