Child car seats


It's a worrying statistic, but recent surveys in the UK found that as many as 80% of children's car seats aren't fitted correctly. If properly restrained, children are 90% less likely to be killed in a collision.

Avon Fire & Rescue Service works with partners from a range of agencies to promote all areas of road safety, among them child car safety seats.

You can get more advice from The Good Egg Guide to In-Car Child Safety by visiting Road Safety GB's website.

Our top tips for keeping your family safe are:

  • Find out what seats are most suitable for your vehicle.
  • Only buy a seat that carries the United Nations ECE R44.04 safety mark.
  • Make sure your retailer has trained members of staff who can fit and check your seat.
  • Always follow the manufacturer's instructions.
