Northern Territory Child Car Restraint Legislation Announcement
As of 1st February 2013 the Northern Territory Government announced new laws for children travelling in vehicles. These new laws require all children in the under seven years of age to be secured in an approved child restraint or booster seat when travelling in a vehicle. The new laws are based on the Australian Road Rules and are designed to ensure that children are better protected when travelling in cars and other vehicles.
For more information, fact sheets and brochures go to Department of Transport website .
If you have any questions relating to the new laws or to arrange for a child car restraint fitting, conversion, check, hire or purchase please contact us on (08) 8941 8234.
The Road Safety section looks at programs and information around how to keep children safe in the car and on the road. Transport related injuries to children are one of the leading causes of hospital admission.
In addition to providing road safety information Kidsafe NT also conducts child car restraint fitting, checking, hiring and advice services.
