Using Child Restraints

80% of Kiwi children not in a safely installed car seat

Eight in ten child restraints (baby capsules, car seats and booster seats) in New Zealand vehicles are incorrectly fitted1; meaning that most Kiwi parents and many childcare workers are putting children at risk.

If you're transporting children in a vehicle on our roads, you need to know how to safely restrain them so they're properly protected. An appropriate child restraint is the best protection that children have when they're travelling in a vehicle. To keep them safe it's important that you use the correct restraint and install it properly.
