Are you driving your little ones around safe and legal?

The laws on children car seats is soon to change with the new regulations set to be in force from March 2017. But do you know what these changes are? Are YOU ready?

The rules on children travelling on backless booster seats are set to change.

At the moment, it is usually children who are over the age of three years and by law must weigh more than 15 kilograms who can travel in a car on a backless booster seat.

From March the rules will state that a child may only travel on a backless booster seat if they weigh more than 22 kilograms and they are more than 125 centimetres tall. It is believed that these new requirements will improve the safety of children travelling in a car in the event of a side on crash.     

These changes will affect the whole of the United Kingdom.

DON’T PANIC! Although these changes are due to be enforced from March, if you already have a car seat for your child you will not need to buy a new one to comply with the new rules. The car seats available now do meet the current safety standards required.

The consequences for not having a child travel on the correct car seat can be a £30.00 fine for the driver of the vehicle. If the case goes to court, the maximum fine is £500.00.
