NSW Seatbelts and Child Restraints

NSW Seatbelts and child restraints

Everyone in a vehicle, the driver and all passengers, must wear a correctly fitted and adjusted seatbelt.

This includes taxi drivers and taxi passengers.

See the Centre for Road Safety website for detailed information about seatbelts.

Child restraints

All children must be safely fastened in the correct child car seat for their age and size. A child who is properly secured in an approved child car seat is less likely to be injured or killed in a car crash than one who is not.

See the Child Car Seats website for detailed information.
