August 23 through September 5th, 2021

Beginning August 23rd through September 5th, Springfield Police and law enforcement agencies throughout Oregon will federally funded overtime to educate the public about safety belt And child seat laws.

No matter what kind of car you drive, using the proper child seat and safety belts are two of the safest choices drivers and passengers can make.

ODOT crash data for 2019 shows lack of safety belt or child restraint use was a factor in 26% or 81 of a total 308 motor vehicle occupant fatalities.

In 2017 an Oregon law was passed requiring children to ride in a rear-facing safety seat until they are at least two years old. A child over age two must continue to ride in a car seat with harness or in a booster until they reach age eight or 4’ 9” in height and the adult belt fits them correctly.

 Online resources available at

  • Car Seat Types: Determine whether your child fits best in a rear-facing car seat, forward-facing car seat, booster seat, or seat belt.
  • Car Seat Recommendations: Review NHTSA’s recommendations for the best car seat for your child’s age and size.
  • Find and Compare: Find and compare car seats with NHTSA’s handy car seat finder, which also searches specific brands.
