Seatbelts and child restraints

Young child in seat restraint with caption 1. Have you got the right car seat? 2. Have you fitted and adjusted it correctly? 3. Do you know how to check it properly?From January 2010 to December 2014, 3% of the total fatality and injury road crashes in Albury were due to non-use of seatbelts or incorrect seatbelt 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.
