LV= Has Revealed That One In Six Drivers Are Breaking Child Car Seat Laws And Putting Their Young Passengers’ Safety At Risk

LV= has carried out research revealing that despite safety risks, one in six drivers break the law regarding child car seats, with family friends the most likely to put children at risk.

By law, drivers must ensure that all children younger than 12 and shorter than 135cm (4’5″) use a child or booster seat. Without this, the risk of fatality or injury in the event of an accident rises by 71% and 69% respectively.

The new laws were introduced in 2006 and the research by car insurer LV= has found many drivers are ignorant of their legal duty of care. One in five (21%) of those who fail to comply with the law say they are unaware the guidelines even exist.

Worryingly, one in ten of those who are aware of the guidelines say they just disregard them and don’t bother to fit safety seats, despite the fact that the laws were brought in to ensure that all children are protected on the roads, to reduce fatalities and injuries.

Not only is the failure to use a proper child seat dangerous for both the passenger and the driver, it also carries a potential penalty fine of £500.

The LV= study shows that children are most at risk when travelling with friends of the family, with over a quarter (26%) of those admitting to not using car child seats.

The research also found that even in cases when an appropriate car seat is used, almost a quarter of drivers (24%) say they do not check the safety seat is installed properly, potentially putting their young passengers in danger.

In 2007 there were more than 3000 child casualties as a result of road accidents, including 121 fatalities. With such high stakes, LV= is today calling on all drivers to ensure they take every precaution and install appropriate safety equipment, to protect themselves and their passengers from harm.

John O’Roarke, Managing Director of LV= Car Insurance, said: “Huge strides have been made to improve child safety on the road in recent years, not least with the introduction of compulsory child seats in 2006. However, it’s clear that many drivers are still confused about the law and for one reason or another, are not following the legislation. So we’d urge all drivers to make sure they’re aware of the guidelines – child seats can take just five minutes to install and greatly reduce the chances of injury to everyone in the car.”

LV= will automatically replace child safety seats for anyone who has taken out their car insurance policy whose car has been in an accident, even if the seat looks undamaged.
