Some tips and recommendations:

  • Be responsible with seatbelt wearing – Always wear your seat belt and see that everyone in the car is wearing theirs.
  • South African law requires each passenger being transported in a motor vehicle to make use of the seatbelts and strap themselves in. It is the driver’s responsibility to make sure all passengers are strapped in mains strapped in while travelling. Itis a criminal offence for an adult to allow a child younger than 14 years to travel unrestrained in a vehicle equipped with seatbelts or a car safety seat.
  • Infants and children under the age of 12 should travel in the back seat of a vehicle and should be buckled up, either in a car seat, booster seat, seat-belt restraint or using the cars seatbelt, depending on the age and weight of the child. Refer to new law for babies under 3 years old.
