Kids’ car seat ad­vice

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

WA par­ents are be­ing en­cour­aged to take their time be­fore re­mov­ing their child’s car seat re­straints as new re­search by Slater and Gor­don shows nearly one in four par­ents would leave their child strapped in longer than the le­gal age of seven. Mo­tor ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent lawyer Tony O’Hur­ley said one of the lead­ing causes of child death and ac­quired dis­abil­ity in Aus­tralia were mo­tor ve­hi­cle crashes. In WA about 35 chil­dren six and younger are killed or se­ri­ously in­jured in road crashes each year.
