Make sure you are using the recommended car seat for your child's age and weight. Arkansas law states that all children under 6 years old and under 60 pounds should be in a car seat at all times in a moving vehicle. Recommendations suggest staying in retraints until they reach the weight limit.
Remember: NEVER leave children or pets in a car, even if the windows are open. The temperature rises quickly, and turns the car into an oven. Also, teach children to avoid playing in cars or trunks. They may get stuck and injured or die in the heat.
