The age that young children will be required to sit in a carseat has been changed from two years to age 7.
The new law will come in from November 1 of 2013.
The car seats must be appropriate for the height and weight of the child, and the vehicle safety belt on its own is not enough.
This will mean that parents will have to change the size of car seats as their children grow.

  1. I don’t think this is a good idea. I stopped when I was five and it was fine.

  2. Yeah! My little sister is 7 but she HATES her carseat. My mum and dad make her sit in one even when she is to tall to sit in it. One thing I know is that we ain’t gonna be buying a new one for her anytime soon! I think the age should be 4, 5 or 6.
