Constable Mike's Safety Seat Message

It is generally accepted that children under the height of 148cm should be seated in an appropriate child restraint. The type of car restraint you should use depends on the age and size of your child.

Land Transport NZ, Factsheet 7, Child Restraints, February 2009.
If you answer 'no' to any of these questions, your child needs to be in a booster (safety) seat.

1.    Does your child sit all the way back against the car seat?
2.    Do your child's knees bend comfortably at the edge of the car seat?
3.    Does the belt cross the shoulder between the neck and the arm?
4.    Can the child stay seated like this for the whole trip?
