There are many things parents and carers can do to help keep children safe on and around the road. Starting from child restraints from birth, to helmet safety for scooters and bikes, to demonstrating and teaching them how to drive safely.
When driving with children up to 7 years of age, you must ensure that they’re restrained in a properly fastened and adjusted Australian Standard (AS) approved child restraint.
Learn more about choosing and installing an appropriate child restraint for your child on our Child Restraints page.
Parents and carers are responsible for keeping their children safe from proper use of child restraints, safety around driveways and carparks, to learning how to walk and cycle safely in their neighbourhood and school community and shaping road safety behaviours from an early age.
