Car Seats for Children

Note that people must be at least 150cm tall to sit in a seat with an inflatable airbag in front of it.   

An unborn child is well protected by a seat belt. The lower part of the belt should lie under the woman's belly.
It is essential that the seat belt be fastened around the infant car seat according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Cat. 0 - weight: 0-10kg, age: up to 9 months
  • Cat. 0+ - weight: 0-13kg, age: up to 18 months
  • Cat. 1 - weight: 9-18kg, age: 9 months to 3-4 years
A child in a rearward facing car seat is protected best in the car. Never put a child's car seat in the front seat of a
car which has inflatable airbags for the front seats.
  • Cat. 1 - weight: 9-18kg, age: 9 months to 3-4 years
  • Cat. 2 - weight: 15-25kg, age: 3-4 to 6-7 years
It is safest to put a child in forward facing car seats, in the rear of the car. It is best to fasten the seat with a 3-point seat belt.
  • Cat. 2 - weight: 15-25kg, age: 3-4 to 6-7 years
  • Cat. 3 - weight: 22-36kg, age: 6-7 to 10-12 years

It is safest for children sitting in booster seats to be in the rear seat of the car. Booster seats should be fastened with 3-point belts. A child should weigh at
least 15kg in order to use a booster seat. A booster seat with a back is required if there's no headrest.

A child should only use a seat belt if it lies across the shoulder and thigh. If the belt runs across the belly or rests on the neck, the child should sit in a booster seat. One must never put a seat belt under a child's arm or slide it behind the child's back.
