The new laws that were recently amended came in place in November 2011 these will require children to be appropriately restrained in a motor vehicle in a suitable approved child restraint from birth up to the age of seven.
Specifically, the new laws will require children –
· Up to the age of six months to be restrained in a rearward facing child restraint (e.g. infant capsule);
· From six months until the age of four to be restrained in either a rearward or forward facing child restraint (e.g. child safety seat); and
· From four years until the age of seven to be restrained in either a forward facing child restraint or booster seat restrained by a correctly adjusted and fastened seatbelt or child safety harness.
The new laws also deal with the issue of children sitting in the front seat of a vehicle.
· Children up to four years of age must be restrained in the rear of the vehicle (where the vehicle has two or more rows of seats); and
· Children aged between four and seven years will not be permitted to sit in the front seat unless all other seating positions are already occupied by children under seven.
By specifying the type of restraint to be used at different ages and where children must be seated in a vehicle, the new laws will reduce the risk of injury caused by the use of unsuitable restraints for a child’s size. Source: RTA
