Travelling with small children in the car can be challenging. Here are some basic rules for adults.
If you have kids, make sure you have the appropriate car seat for them based on their age group and buckle them correctly. Children aged up to seven years must travel in a child restraint. Children seven years and older can use an adult seatbelt if they’re big enough to safely wear one.
Make sure your kid always keeps arms, legs and head inside the car when it’s moving or parked on the side of the road.
Activate childproof door locks so your child can’t get out when the car is moving or standing still.
Always get your child in and out of the car on the kerbside, away from traffic.
Never leave a child alone in the car even if it is for a short while. The temperature inside the car can very quickly rise up and result in dehydration, heat stroke and even death.
