BUCKLE UP IN THE BACK!

YOURS (UK) - - Good To Know -

Make sure you buckle in your grand­chil­dren cor­rectly when you take them out in the car. New re­search from LV= re­veals more than half of grand­par­ents are un­aware of the UK’s child car-seat law and al­most one in four never uses a car seat, believ­ing chil­dren are safe with just a seat­belt. Chil­dren must nor­mally use a child car seat un­til they’re 12 or 135cm tall, which­ever comes first. Those not stick­ing to the law risk a £500 fine as well as putting grand­chil­dren in dan­ger. The in­surer is call­ing on the Gov­ern­ment to work in part­ner­ship with schools and the au­thor­i­ties to raise aware­ness among grand­par­ents – and par­ents – to en­sure they are driv­ing chil­dren safely and legally.
