Specific provisions on the use of child restraints in vehicles in the Netherlands are found in the Traffic Rules and Signs Regulations 1990.[35]  Section 27 of the Act is on “seat belts and child safety systems” (autogordels en kinderbeveiligingssystemen).[36]  A government brochure on road traffic regulations in the Netherlands has a summary translation of the articles on child restraints, among other provisions.[37]

[39] Decree 23 of 1998, On the Executive Regulation of Traffic Law No. 28 of 1993, ch. 8, § 3, annex 3, item 15, at 297 (Mar. 10, 1998), available on the website of the Oman Legal Network, at Resault.aspx?law_file=omanlegal-1305.pdf.

Although some of the requirements are fairly easy to follow, the laws on child car seats in the UK are more complex than you might imagine. Once you get past the basics, child seats fall into two categories:

Children less than three years of age cannot be transported in vehicles that are not equipped with safety belts or restraint systems.  Children above the age of three and below 150 cm but of at least 135 cm tall may sit in the back seat, provided that there is a seat belt. They may not sit in the front seat.[22]

Section 43D of Trinidad and Tobago’s Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Act 1934 provides that children aged five years old and under must be restrained by a seat belt or in a car seat when traveling in a vehicle.[52]  A 2013 report by the WHO gave Trinidad and Tobago a rating of 8 out of 10 for its enforcement of child seat-belt safety laws.[53]

[29] Undang-Undang Nomor 22 Tahun 2009 tentang Lalu Lintas dan Angkutan Jalan [Law No. 22 of 2009 Concerning Road Traffic and Transportation] art. 57(3)(a),  An English translation of this law is available on a website that appears to be run by the Thailand Department of Land Transport, at WG_Indonesia+Law+22+year+2009_English.pdf.

Cyprus’s Law 5(I) 2007, which amends the basic Road Safety Law (Law No. 174/1986),[18] transposes Directive 2003/20/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 April 2003, Amending Council Directive 91/671/EEC on the Approximation of the Laws of the Member States Relating to Compulsory Use of Safety Belts in Vehicles of Less Than 3.5 Tons.[19]

There is only one exception to the law when it comes to children under three. This is when they travel in the backseat of a taxi or privately hired car, where there is no appropriate seat available. In this instance, it falls on the driver of the car to ensure the child is restrained.
