When travelling in cars, children and adults need to be using restraints or seat belts that are properly fitted and suited to the age and size of the person.
- Babies under six months need to be seated in a properly fastened and adjusted approved rearward-facing child restraint.
- Children aged between six months and four years are to be seated in a properly fastened and adjusted rearward-facing or forward-facing approved child restraint with an inbuilt harness.
- Children aged four years to under seven years are to be seated in a properly fastened and adjusted forward-facing approved child restraint with an inbuilt harness, or an approved booster seat.
- Children aged between four and seven years are not permitted to sit in the front seat unless all other seating positions are already occupied by children under seven.
Use the back seat for all under-fives if you can.
Never leave your baby or toddler alone in the car
Cars turn into ovens very quickly, even on cool or overcast days. Leaving your child alone in a car is not only extremely dangerous, but also illegal in Australia. You can be charged and convicted.
