Ollie the Otter!

Ollie the Otter came to Gadsden after lunch to explain the importance of child safety when riding in automobiles. 

Tennessee state law mandates that children need a safety restraint in a forward-facing car seat through the age of 3 and weighing more than twenty pounds. ... Typically your child may reach the age of nine before reaching 4'9”, if this is the case then they still should remain in a booster until they have reached the appropriate height.

The Tennessee car seat state law states, once a child reaches the age of nine or is taller than 4 feet 9 inches, he or she may sit in the front seat. When doing so, he or she must be secured by a seat belt. Teenagers ages 13 through 15 must always wear a seat belt, whether in the front or in the back seat.
