Australian Road Rules 7th amendment package 2007: draft regulatory impact statement

The Australian Road Rules currently require the use of approved child restraints up to an age of twelve months. Beyond this age children need only be restrained by a seatbelt, but accident research shows that dedicated child restraint systems reduce the risk of serious injury, compared with seatbelts. This regulatory impact statement assesses whether approved child restraints should be mandated for children over twelve months of age and recommends that child restraints be compulsory for children up to seven years of age. Part B of this document comprises an assessment of a small group of miscellaneous amendments to the Australian Road Rules requested by the Australian Road Rules Maintenance Group to give better effect to the intent of the rules.
