Encouraging results from car seat checks
Child car seat checks carried out recently in Bracknell produced a much better result than when they were last carried out in October 2005.
Bracknell Forest Borough Council, Halfords and seat-manufacturers Britax joined forces to give the free checks on 6 May.
70% of the 77 seats checked were fitted correctly - the corresponding figure in October 2005 was just 37%.
Parents were also advised that from September it is likely to be a legal requirement for toddlers aged under three, and children under 1.35metres/4ft 5in to wear appropriate restraints while travelling in cars. A child silhouette was used to highlight the critical height.
For further information about the tests contact Bracknell's RSO, Chris Pickett on 01344 351212, or: firstname.lastname@example.org.
