The use of seat belts and child restraints is one of the most important actions that can be taken to prevent and reduce injury in a motor vehicle crash. Child restraints are also effective in reducing injuries that can occur during non-crash events, such as a sudden stop, a swerving evasive manoeuvre or a door opening during vehicle movement.

Infants and children need a child restraint system that accommodates their size and weight, and can adapt to cope with the different stages of their development.
