This week Jo from Plunket came to talk with us about car safety. She brought along her friend Booster Rooster who reminded us of car seat safety and the importance of using booster seats until you are 148cm tall. Each child was measured against Booster Roosters height chart, and then given a certificate with this information. The reason for needing booster seats is that car seat belts are designed for adults and therefore children are more than likely to be damaged by the seat belt in an accident. Using a booster until they are tall enough keeps them safer, as it keeps the belt firmly on the shoulders and hips. Another important safety tip is that the back seat is the safest place to be. Cayden did a fantastic job of helping his Mum share this information with the children and we could tell that this is something he knows well.Thanks Jo and Cayden for taking the time to share this with us.
