When must a child be in a safety seat? This question is asked many times and the law can be a bit confusing. Simply put, a child under 4 must be in a safet seat when riding anywhere in the vehicle. Children under 5 who are at least 36 inches (3-feet) in height do not have to be in a safety seat but must be seat belted. All others under 17 must also be seat belted. This applies to both the front seat and the back seat.

Founded in 1881 with the coming of the railroad, Clint is rich in history. Texas Rangers were stationed here during the famed "El Paso Salt Wars" and remained until the 1920's. The ranger station still stands today. (now a private residence). The first County Jail of El Paso is only 1 mile away in neighboring San Elizario. This jail, it is said, is the jail that "Billy the Kid" broke into, to free a friend. The Clint Police Station is a historic adobe structure built in the 1920's. Inside are many historical photos and artifacts.
