TODAY : Child Restraint Changes 11 March 2010
It’s common sense, and of course the law, that children and adults must be properly restrained while travelling in vehicles to ensure their safety.
As from today, the 11th of March 2010, it will be the law for all children up to seven years of age to be correctly restrained according to their size and age. Naturally an incorrect or ill fitting restraint is not only illegal but likely to be dangerous. Therefore, it is vital that the right child restraint is chosen and correctly installed.
Don’t take a risk with a child’s life, or serious injury to your most precious cargo.
The penalty for incorrectly securing a child is $A300 and three demerit points.
