The Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety awarded Tucson Medical Center over $28,000 for child car seats.

The money will provide 634 car seats. The seats will be distributed to low-income families along with one-on-one education through car seat giveaway events. 

TMC said this grant will allow for public education aimed at increasing the proper and consistent use of seatbelts and child safety seats.

Arizona's Booster Seat law requires children who are younger than 8 years old or less than 4 feet 9 inches to sit in a child safety seat, such as a booster seat, when riding in a car.
