Child Restraints


Lane Cove Council holds four free Child Restraint Checking Sessions per year.  Please contact the Council's Road Safety Officer on (02) 9911 3576 to register your interest in attending one of these sessions.   Alternatively, you can search for Authorised Restraint Fitting Stations in the local area.

Whenever children are passengers in vehicles they should be buckled-up in child restraints that are correct for their size (height and weight). The Centre for Road Safety has comprehensive information on the current National Child Restraint Laws

Using a restraint that fits your child correctly significantly reduces their risk of injury in a car crash.

The Child Car Seats website lets you quickly find and compare more than 200 types of forward facing, rear facing and booster seats. You can find details of how the seats are tested and rated. The site has information on how to use seats correctly, check if they are still safe and answers to common questions.

The Safety Door

The Safety Door is the rear door, closest to the kerb, footpath or gutter and away from the road.

Get children in to the habit of getting in and out of a vehicle using this door with a Safety Door sticker from the RMS. To order your free stickers contact the RMS on 1800 06 06 07 or contact the Council's Road Safety Officer on (02) 9911 3576.
