Seat Belts & Child Restraints
Why wearing a seatbelt is important!
Drivers and front-seat passengers, reduce the risk of death by 45% and cut the risk of serious injury by 50% by wearing a seat belt. Furthermore if you don't wear a seat belt, you are 30 times more likely to be ejected from a vehicle during a crash. So buckle up every time!
What rules apply to Child Restraints?
Children aged under 7 years must use an approved suitable child restraint when travelling in a vehicle. A child restraint is a forward‑facing or rear-facing child car seat, or a booster seat. To be approved, child restraints must meet Australian/New Zealand Standard. The driver is responsible for children aged under 7 years being secured by an approved child restraint suitable for their age and size.
