To keep on sharing the new child restraint laws with families at your children's service. All children up to 7 years must now be correctly restrained in an approved child restraint, suitable for their size and age. For 4 to 7 year olds, this means forward facing child restraints or booster seats. For more details about these new child restraint laws and for answers to some Frequently Asked Questions families might ask about them, click here. For detailed answers to even more FAQs, visit the RTA website.
Kids and Traffic have addressed many of the issues involved in transporting young children safely in buses and other vehicles designed to seat 12 or fewer adults (including the driver) as well as in those designed to seat 13 or more adults (including the driver).
