Did you know?
- Seat belts are designed to fit adults, not children.
- A child should use a booster seat until 9 to 12 years of age.
- All boosters must use a lap/shoulder seatbelt.
- If you are using a low-backed booster, your vehicle must have adjustable head restraints. They should not be set lower than the top of your child’s ears.
Not sure if your child needs a booster seat?
Complete the booster seat safety checklist (PDF). If you answer “no” to any of the questions, your child needs to sit in a booster seat in order to ensure he/she is safe when travelling in a vehicle.
