This is a reminder about the new child restraint law that begins next week on the 1st of November! So make sure if you are carrying your child as a passenger in the car they need to be in an approved child restraint up to their seventh birthday. However, regardless of age, school children are safest in a booster seat until they are 148cm tall.
Keep our kids safe!
Law Change for Booster Seats: 1 November 2013
From 1 November 2013 the law is changing – all children must use an approved booster seat until their 7th birthday.
If there is a booster seat available in the vehicle children are also required by law to use this until their 8th birthday. The driver of the vehicle is responsible to make sure all children travelling with them are correctly secured.
