CHP & OTS California Restraint Safety Education and Training Campaign

CHP & OTS California Restraint Safety Education and Training Campaign

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) and the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) are working together to focus on child safety through the California Restraint Safety Education and Training (CARSEAT II) campaign.  Reducing the number of children killed in collisions because they were not properly restrained is the goal of the year-long CARSEAT II campaign.  CHP will host educational seminars, classes, and child safety seat inspections throughout California to help meet the goal.  California law requires a child be properly restrained in an appropriate child safety seat in the rear seat of a vehicle until they are at least eight years of age.  For the best protection, all children should ride rear-facing until they reach the upper weight and height limits of their car seat.  Information regarding child passenger safety, child safety seats, and seat belt regulations, is available at any local CHP Area office.
