Child road safety
Travelling with kids
Sometimes travelling with children can be a little overwhelming. Here are some tips that can help you all enjoy the journey.
Filling up fuel
Where possible fill up at a service station that lets you pay at the pump.
Take your child with you when you pay for fuel.
Never leave your child in the car.
Secure your child safely in the child restraint first. Then put away your shopping and the pram.
Getting children out of the car
Always get the youngest child out of the car first. Then let the older siblings out of the car.
Use rear left door when taking your child in/out of the car.
Car safety locks
Always use child locks on car doors and windows
Always supervise your children whenever a vehicle is to be moved - hold their hands or hold them close to keep them safe.
If you're the only adult at home and need to move a vehicle, even only a small distance, place children securely in the vehicle with you while you move it.
