Child Car Seats

Carrying Other People's Children

Advice about child car seats and seat belts for anyone who transports other people's children in a car, taxi, coach or bus, such as parents sharing the school run and organisations providing a transport service.

Seat belts on their own are less effective for children because they are primarily designed for adults. In a crash, a child may slide under an adult belt because the lap strap is too high over their abdomen, or the belt could cause serious injuries to the child.
