ROAD SAFETY

Keeping our children safe while in the car.
Animals

Motor vehicle crashes are a major cause of unintentional death and injury, which is why it is important that we all take measures to ensure everyone is travelling as safely as possible.

We have information including fact sheets, videos, and even a free child car restraint checking program (Safe Seats Safe Kids) to help you keep your kids safe on the roads.

‘Front seat is not a treat’ Campaign

Kids are always eager to be able to sit in the front seat of the car, but when is it actually safe for them to do so?

Research shows that injury risk to children aged 12 and under is nearly double in the front seat compared to the back seat, irrespective of restraint type. It’s important to remember that the ‘front seat is not a treat’ – we recommend that all children under the age of 12 sit in the back row of seats where possible.

It's not just about size
