New polls are showing that 66% of parents don't fully understand the right height, age and weight regulations when it comes to their children's car seats.
A study recently carried out by consumer website Confused.com also found that 34% of parents admitted to occasionally not using a booster seat for their child at all!
So, what do we need to know about the new booster seat laws?
It's simple really, the new regulations will come into force around February/March next year and will enforce that new backless booster seats that are produced can only be used for children over 125cm and weighing more than 22kg. Current booster seats already on the market can continue to be used by children from 15kg. If you follow the guidance on your seat, you can't go far wrong.
If you already have and use a booster seat, it is still legal to use, and the 'ban on booster seats' is not correct. High backed booster seats are the safest way for an older child to travel though.
Parents needs to remember that their child needs to stay in some form of car seat until they're 12 years old or 135cm tall - that's a non-negotiable.
It might be handy to get the weighing scales and tape measure out, just to be sure you know exactly which car seat will be suitable to keep your little ones safe and sound in the car.
