So a new child seat law comes into effect in a month’s time. It tightens up the existing rules for children in cars, and means that some kids who were formerly riding without seats will need booster cushions.
The Beeb has a FAQ on the whole issue, including a few questions they’ve asked of the Road Safety Minister, Stephen Ladyman. My absolute favourite exchange is here:
What if a child refuses to use a child seat or cushion?
Mr Ladyman recognises that in some cases “there will be hell to pay”. He suggests parents blame him.
Betcha he has kids.
