Children travelling in cars - SEATBELTS

Although the majority of motorists wear a seat belt for every trip, more than 800 people were found not to be wearing one in Staffordshire in 2022.

Some of these offences related to children, so we’re reaching out to schools and parents as it’s the legal responsibility of the driver to make sure any child travelling in their vehicle is suitably restrained in a child seat or using a seat belt.

Children must use a child car seat and applicable restraint until they’re 12-years-old or 135 centimetres tall, whichever comes first. They must then wear a seat belt.
