New Seat Belt And Child Restraints Rules Welcomed

Roadsafe welcomes the announcement that new regulations aimed at improving road safety through more appropriate use of child restraints are to be implemented later in the year.

Details of proposed new regulations aimed at improving road safety through more appropriate use of child restraints were announced today by Road Safety Minister Stephen Ladyman. The government estimates that some 2000 casualties could be saved if all drivers ensured that their passengers adhered to the new regulations.

Commenting on the announcement, RoadSafe director Adrian Walsh said:

"Although these regulations will bring us into line with Europe, there is no earthly reason why responsible drivers should not insist on all passengers wearing belts now. It is staggering just how often they simply don’t bother - worse still many parents don’t use appropriate child seats or even allow young children to sit in the front of cars."
