From the moment a newborn baby leaves hospital and until they finally use a seat belt as an adult. How should a child travel throughout their life? In this infographic we provide answers to the main mobility issues a child may have to face when traveling in different ways.
Based on their physical condition and on all journeys, children should always use a child restraint system. It is the safest way for children to travel in different kinds of vehicles. Don't forget that in vehicles with up to nine seats, including the driver, children under 135 cm tall must go in the back seats and be seated in an approved child restraint system suitable for their weight and height.
Only three exceptions can be made:
- If the vehicle does not have any rear seats.
- If all the rear seats are already occupied by other children in their respective child restraints.
- If child restraint systems cannot be installed in the said seats.
In this infographic we also reveal how children should travel by bicycle, how they should behave as pedestrians and how they should travel on other forms of transport throughout their lives.
