- By law, all children must use a car seat until they are 12 years old or 135cm tall, whichever comes first.
- From March, ‘backless’ booster seats will be banned for children shorter than 125cm and weighing less than 22kg
This change is in a bid to improve safety. Basically itjust means that most kids will have to spend longer using a high-backed child seat. HOWEVER The rules will only apply to new purchases, so drivers won’t be fined for using a booster seat bought before March. Meaning that there is no need to rush out and buy a new car seat for your child.... PHEW!
