Child Car Seat Law

In September the law on car seat belt use and child restrain is changing. The main difference relates to children between the ages of 3 and 11. At the moment a child restrain need only be used if available. But from the autumn the correct child restraint seat must be used.

There is also a new height criterion that comes into force. So, if the child is over 11 years of age but under 1.35 metres tall (approx 4ft 5ins) then the same regulation will apply.

The effect of the new law will be to reduce the number of child deaths or injury by 2000 each year. So, even if it does impose a further burden of responsibility on the driver, it must be regarded as a positive move.
