Child Restraint Laws Victoria
All persons travelling in a motor vehicle must travel in a restraint that is properly adjusted and fastened. The restraint will be a child restraint, booster seat or adult seatbelt. The type of restraint will depend on the person’s size.
In November 2009, national car restraint laws came into affect regarding child restraints. Child restraint fitting now offer a service where we will perform an audit of your infant car seat to check and ensure that it is compliant with the current requirements (small fee).
Specifically, the law requires children –
- Up to the age of six months to be restrained in a rearward facing child restraint (e.g. infant capsule);
- From six months until the age of four to be restrained in either a rearward or forward facing child restraint (e.g. child safety seat); and
- From four years until the age of eight to be restrained in either a forward facing child restraint or booster seat restrained by a correctly adjusted and fastened seatbelt or child safety harness.
- Children up to four years of age must be restrained in the rear of the vehicle (where the vehicle has two or more rows of seats);
By specifying the type of restraint to be used at different ages and where children must be seated in a vehicle, the new laws will reduce the risk of injury caused by the use of unsuitable restraints for a child’s size.
