In a crash at 30mph, a child who is unbelted and without a legal child restraint will turn into a human missile. It is likely the child will sustain life-threatening physical injuries, including brain injuries, and that other people in the vehicle will be killed or seriously injured.
Make sure your child always wears a seatbelt and a legal child restraint – it could save their life in a crash.
