On Tuesday morning class 1 and 2 had a very informative talk from a representative of the council road safety team about safety as a pedestrian and the use of car seats. She talked about safe use of the pavement, how to cross a road and safe places to cross a road. She also went onto to talk about who should use a car seat and where children should sit.
Some interesting points about car seats to come out of the talk:
All children until they are 12 years old or under 135cm should use a car seat – which is most of class 1 and 2 and some of class 3.
Children should not use the front passenger seat until they are 13.
If a child has to be seated in a front passenger seat then the seat must be moved back on its runners as far as it will go and/or turn the airbags off.
