ST, 18 June 2016, One in 4 parents flouts seat belt rules

{Extract}

The law requires passengers under 1.35m to be secured with an appropriate child restraint or use a booster seat or adjustable seat belt.

Under the Road Traffic Act, drivers and passengers found not using a seat belt or appropriate restraints can be fined up to $1,000 or jailed up to three months, or both.

Mr Bernard Tay, president of the Automobile Association of Singapore, said: “A properly fitted child restraint system can reduce fatal injuries by up to 80 per cent for toddlers and 90 per cent for infants.”
