New Law for your Child's Safety - Booster Seat Ban

Under Current UK law, all children travelling in a car must use the correct car seat until the age of 12 years old or 135cm tall. Although in some other European countries the height limit is 150cm. Stricter rules regarding the use of the booster seats will come into force late 2016 limiting the use mainly of the backless booster to only older children. Currently, children weighing as little as 15kg's, that's around three years old, can travel in a backless booster seats. But many experts & parents agree that this type of booster seat is unsuitable for young children. A small child would not be held securely in the seat as the adult seat belt is not well secured across their small frames and offers no protection in the case of a side impact crash. The new additions to the child car seats regulations should come into effect around December, yet will only apply to any new products appearing on the market. Parents who currently have a booster seat however will still be able to use it without breaking any rules. But if you watch the video below, you may want to reconsider as this show just how little protection these seats offer.
