1-877-LUV-TOTS used to lead to a car seat safety number, but not any more. Now the number set up by the Colorado State Patrol to help rural parents find child car seat safety information leads to a phone sex line.

Colorado State Patrol spokesman Nate Reid told the Denver Post that the department is aware that when parents call the number for the Colorado State Patrol Child-Passenger Safety Team program they end up receiving a lot more than car seat safety information. They are working on fixing it immediately.

CSP spokesman Mike Baker told Colorado’s Fox affiliate, KDVR, that the phone number was established in 2002 and worked well for about six years, but then “it started having glitches.” A statewide push was made in January 2012 to no longer use the number and remove it from websites and pamphlets. Baker said it was not a sex line at the time of the directive, but turned into a sex line sometime in the last two years. Unfortunately, the State Patrol has no control over the situation.

The number was no longer on the Colorado State Patrol’s car seat safety website, however, as of early Tuesday morning, KDVR could still find the number on Health One’s car seat safety website.

It’s unclear whether anyone has tried asking the phone sex workers if they know anything about car seat safety.
