It is the law to wear seatbelts in the front and rear of the car. Children aged over 14 and adult passengers are responsible for wearing seatbelts themselves.
Pregnant women MUST wear a seatbelt in the car (unless exempt for medical reasons). Place the shoulder strap between the breasts. Make sure the lap part of the belt is positioned under the baby, across the thighs.
Child Car Seats
All children MUST wear an appropriate child restraint suitable for their weight and height. An infant carrier or child car seat should never be used on a passenger seat with an airbag fitted. A 'switched-off' airbag can inflate in a crash.
Booster Seats / Cushions
The lap belt should go over the pelvic region, not the stomach. The diagonal strap should rest over the shoulder, not the neck. The belt should be worn as tight as possible.
