Protecting the Unborn Child
 

The best way to protect an unborn child is to protect the mother. Pregnant women should always sit in a, seat where with 'a lap belt and shoulder strap are available.

It is important that the belt be worn low so that it pulls downward over the pelvic bones and not against the abdomen. It should also be as snug as possible. Sitting very upright makes the seat belt fit more comfortably. If there is a. crash, pregnant women should always go for a medical checkup
afterwards.

Special seats for special needs
There are special child safety seats available for children with physical disabilities. Contact your child's physical therapist or specialty organization, to find out. Where you can get a special seat to meet your special needs.
Important Reminders
  • Seat belts and child safety seats must be used correctly to reduce injuries and prevent death.
  • Do not leave groceries, parcels, hard toys and other solid objects loose in the vehicle. In a crash, they could be thrown around and injure people. Place them in the trunk.
  • Carry only as many people in the car as there are seat belts or child. Safety seats available. Never allow two people to ' share a belt. In a. sudden stop, the belt can pull the two bodies toward each other, causing possible internal damage and head injuries.
  • It is the law to use a child safety seat or seat belt, and the law requires that they be used correctly. The law also holds the driver responsible for everyone in the vehicle under 16 years of age. The driver can be fined for not *making sure young passengers are buckled up.
  • It will cost you two (2) demerit points and a $90 fine plus $15 surcharge, if you or your children under the age of 16 are not buckled up.
