Child seat belt advice

Child seat belt advice

Rugby Neighbourhood Police have been doing their bit to keep the public safe and strapped in as part of the campaign aimed at seat belft safety and enforcement. 

The campaign, aimed at child car seat safety, was run in conjunction with the national TISPOL (European Traffic Police Network) seatbelt campaign.

It highlighted not only the consequences if you don’t wear your seatbelt, but also encouraged motorists to comply with seatbelt legislation to help reducie injuries and deaths on our roads.

The police presence atr Elliott's Field was an opportunity to educate drivers on the fairly recent change in law regarding child seatbelts, which changed in March last year.

It now states that children must use a child seat until they are 12 years old or 135cm tall, whichever comes first.
