Fortin called for police backup. 

Two officers answered the call.

"We don't know what other drivers will do," Officer Cory Snead told Camille. "Other drivers might not pay attention and run into the back of your mom, or (the) side of the car. If you were not buckled, your body is going to hit something."

Camille promised police that she'll stay buckled in her seat from now on when she's in the car, KPHO reported.
