Keeping children safe in and out of the car

Written by George Slewo

A child who is properly secured in an approved child car seat is less likely to be killed or injured in a crash than one who is not.

 Children aged between four and seven years cannot travel in the front seat of a vehicle with two or more rows unless all other back seats are occupied by children younger than seven years in a child car seat.

 National child restraint laws require your child to be restrained in the car as follows:

0 – 6 months

 Approved rear-facing child car seat.

 6 months – 4 years

 Approved rear or forward-facing child car seat.

 4+ years

 Approved forward-facing child car seat or booster seat.
