Seatbelts and child restraints

About 8% of injury and fatality crashes in Federation Council each year involve non-use of seat belts or incorrect seat belt usage.

Some of these fatalities and injuries could have been prevented if all children occupied the right restraint for their size and age and if restraints were installed and used correctly. Parents or carers should choose a restraint that provides the highest available level of protection and make sure it is used correctly every time.
