Child car seats?

Post by Elise » Sat, 07 Jan 2006 7:47 am

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone knew what the law is regarding child/baby car seats and harnesses?

We're arriving at the end of January and plan on taking a taxi from the airport to our hotel.

Our son weighs 12kgs - will he be ok in just a car seat belt?

Thanks for any help
Elise

Taxi exempted from child seat law. Roads are relatively safe and speeds relatively low. Nothing to worry about.

Car Seats Always

Although roads safe and drivers reasonable, may I suggest you buy a lightweight booster seat which is "weight free" on most airlines, and pop your child in that. I have a 13 kg child and when travelling and using taxis I prefer a booster to normal car seat - for convenience without diminishing safety.
