Child car restraint laws were introduced in the Territory in February 2013 requiring that children up to the age of 7 years be restrained in an age/development appropriate child car seat.
If you have any questions relating to the child restraint laws in the NT or you wish to book a child car restraint fitting, or hire or purchase a restraint for your child please contact us on:
(08) 8941 8234.
There is also information, fact sheets and brochures on NT child car restraint legislation here: Department of Transport website .
The new Australian Standards have been implemented and there are new factsheets available now for free download! Over the past 10 years falls in the Territory, fall injuries are the main reason children have ended up in hospital. Half the fall injuries are related to Playgrounds - with countless more children injured who do not require hospital admission. So please take the time to refer to our Playground page and ensure children in your care are as safe as possible whilst playing!
