Child car safety is simple. It starts with correctly fitting child restraints and making sure you always buckle your children into them correctly. It’s also vital to seat children appropriately, and it can help to keep children happy and entertained while you’re driving.
Children aged up to seven years must travel in a child restraint. Children seven years and older can use an adult seatbelt, but only if they’re big enough to safely wear one. This is when children are at least 145cm tall.
This means that child car safety begins with carefully choosing, properly fitting, and always using the right child restraint for your child’s age and size. Your child will be ready to move onto a bigger child restraint once his shoulders reach higher than the upper shoulder height marker found on child restraints.
