Child Safety Seats and Restraints in Vehicles: A Rule in Smart Parenting23 March 2016
The importance of being a parent hasn’t changed, even though technology has changed the world, but it is as serious now as it has ever been to protect children from harm. Thankfully, regulations and laws in Australia are designed to ensure that the greatest means to keep children safe are in place, and these help parents. A good example of this are child restraint requirements for children travelling in motorised vehicles.
Child Safety Seats and Restraints in Vehicles
Child safety seats and restraints in vehicles should be every parents concern, and most parents are in compliance with these requirements, but some parents are honestly in the dark about the specific requirements for their child’s size and age. This is understandable, since new laws and requirements take some time for people to become aware of, and then make proper adjustments of their vehicle’s child safety seats and restraints.

And, you have our guarantee that your car, van or SUV will have the best means of protection for your child’s size and age, and that meets and exceeds child safety requirements.

The biggest concern with child safety is that small children sitting in a seat design for larger adults could prove unsafe, because the seat restraints could ultimately injure them in the event of an accident, instead of securing and protecting them. Now, motorised vehicle require custom fit-to-size child seats and restraints, which is good news to parents, because it will ensure greater protection for their children in case a collision occurs.
