FAQs

  • At what age can a child travel in the front seat ?

    Answer

    The Australian road rules allow a child aged 7 years and over to travel in the front seat, however research shows that children under 16 years of aged are at 40% greater risk of injury when traveling in the front seat. If a vehicle has two or more rows of seats, children aged under 4 years must not travel in the front seat. If all rear seats are being used by children under 7 years of age, children aged 4 years to under 7 years may travel in the front seat, provided they travel in a booster seat.

  • Can we use a child restraint or booster seat from overseas ?

    Answer

    No. Child restraints and booster seats purchased overseas do not comply with the Australian Standard for child restraints: AS/NZS 1754:2010 so using them in Australia is illegal. The Australian Standard is one of the most stringent child restraint standards in the world.

    A convertible booster seat combines the features of a forward facing restraint for children from age six months to four years of age with the features of a booster seats for children aged four to under seven years of age. These restraints come with an inbuilt harness and a top tether strap.

  • What type of restraint should I use for my child?

    Answer

    You should use a restraint that is appropriate for your child’s age and size. It must be an approved child restraint that complies with Australian Standards (AS/NZS1754) and is marked as complying with the Australian Standard. Advice on how to select an appropriate child restraint can be found on our website in the 'safe travel' section. You can compare different car seats in the section 'products'.

  • Why do babies have to travel in a rear-facing position?

    Answer

    Babies have a large and heavy head compared to the rest of their body. In addition, their neck muscles are not yet fully developed. If the baby is transported in a forward-facing position, his or her head will be thrown forward in the event of a head-on collision. This can cause serious neck injury and may even be fatal. By placing the baby in a rear-facing position, the forces exerted during the crash will be distributed across the baby’s entire back. That's why we recommend to keep babies rearward-facing as long as possible.
