A petition is gathering signatures in an attempt to change the law on car seats to keep children rearward facing up to the age of 4.
The current law states that children must remain rear-facing up to 9kg and must remain in a car seat up until the age of 12 or 135cm, whichever comes first.
However, in Scandinavia, the law states that children must remain rear-facing up until the age of 4-5 (25kg) and in Sweden between July 2006 and November 2007, not one child under the age of six was killed in a car crash.
Studies have also backed up the statistics, with crash tests showing that in a forward facing seat, a dummy's neck stretched by up to 2 inches, when a child's neck only needs to stretch a quarter of an inch before snapping.
Powerful video shows the importance of car seats.
The petition will need to gather 10,000 signatures by the 16th May 2016 before the government will respond. At 100,000 signatures, this petition will be considered for debate in Parliament.
