DENVER (AP) - Parents looking for guidance on car-seat safety may get more than they bargained for when they call the Colorado State Patrol information line, which now apparently belongs to a phone sex company.

When parents call 1-877-LUV-TOTS, which is listed on numerous State Patrol publications and has been used by the department for years, they reach a recording advertising "America's hottest talk line."

Patrol spokesman Nate Reid told The Denver Post on Monday the department is fixing the problem. The number has since been taken off of the State Patrol website.

Reid told The Associated Press he didn't know if the phone sex company recently purchased the number, and he referred further questions to another spokesman, who did not immediately return a message left by the AP on Monday night.
