What are child restraints?
Under New Zealand law, it is required that all children under seven years of age must correctly use an approved child restraint suitable for their age and size. While a child between 8-14 years old must use safety belts where they are available.
Approved child restraints, according to New Zealand Transport Agency include the following:
- infant restraints for young babies (often called baby capsules)
- restraints for older babies, toddlers and preschool children (often called car seats)
- booster seats for preschool and school-aged children
- child safety harnesses (used with or without a booster seat) for preschool and school-aged children.
Children must be correctly seated in child restraints that are correctly secured into the car to keep them safe from crash forces.
