New laws come into place from Monday with regard to child seats. In a nutshell, if your child is under 11 years old and less than 150cms, then they need a child seat of some kind.
This is likely to cause problems, for example, when you go to pick up other children. The responsibility is the drivers so if someone has forgotten to supply a seat, you can be in trouble if you then drive them.
But there IS one big issue, as I see it. Booster seats have a maximum weight of 36kg. If your child is less than 11, less than 150cms tall and over 36kg then what do they do? Well, according to the Department of Transport, they should still use the seat. Even though it’s against manufacturers recommendations. Does that make sense to you, because it doesn’t to me?
