China To Introduce New Child Car Seat Law

 

 
China is set to introduce new child car safety laws after a recent report was released "The Feasibility of China's Mandatory Use of Children's Safety Seats" by the China Automobile Research Center during the one-year anniversary of the use of "restraint systems for kids on vehicles". The report looks at the mandatory use of children's safety seats,the current situation of kids in cars, factors that influence domestic mandatory use of children's safety seats.

 

Only 5 percent of the population in China uses child car seats as compared to nearly 95 percent use within the European Union. The reason for such low use of appropriate car restraints is that majority of the parents and grandparents hold their children in their arms. These statistics were established through the use of over 2,800 questionnaires carried out by the China Automobile Research Center with over 65 percent of the parents saying that they carry their children in their arms while in the car.
 
Here is a look at Child restraint laws in various countries
 
US
In the US, child restraint laws vary from state to state. 50 states and the District of Columbia require child safety seats for infants and children fitting specific criteria. However, 48 states and the District of Columbia require booster seats or other appropriate devices for children who have outgrown their child safety seats but are too small to use an adult seat belt safety. Florida and South Dakota are the only two states that lack booster seat laws.
 
Only five states- California, Florida, Louisiana, New Jersey and New York have seat belt requirements for school buses while Texas requires them on buses acquired after September 2010.
 
 First offense fines for not complying with a state’s child car safety law vary from USD 10 to USD 500. In some states, there is an additional penalty for non-compliance in the form of demerit of driver’s license points. The requirements vary based on age, weight and height in the form of infant, toddler and child.
 
UK
The law requires all children from infancy to the age of 12 or are 135cm in height to be properly placed in the correct child restraint. The use of an appropriate child restraint applies in all kinds of vehicles, including vans, buses, coaches and minibuses. The penalty of failing to ensure that a child passenger is using a correct child restraint is up to GBP 500 also this could affect any motor insurance claims made.
 
Canada
In Quebec, children who measure less than 63cm while in a sitting position must be placed in a car seat that is designed according to the child’s weight.There are three car seat categories infant, booster and child that are to be used while traveling. There is no law regarding the use of car restraints in vans, buses and coaches. The penalty of non-compliance to this law is a fine of CND 115 to CND 154 and three demerit points. 
 
The Chinese law is still in the early stages with a pilot yet to be conducted in Shanghai. The authorities chose Shanghai because they believe the rate of implementation will be faster from a big city to a small one than vice versa. The full details of this law are still not available but we will be on the look out for them. The true test of this law will come in the enforcing around the country.

Re: China To Introduce New Child Car Seat Law

I think this law would go over much like the ban on smoking in public places in Beijing - a lot of signs and hoopla with little overall effect.

Re: China To Introduce New Child Car Seat Law

It's about time there are car seat laws! I get strange looks when I haul my car seat of of a car, and even had to explain to the nurses at my hospital that a car seat was necessary for my baby's safety in case of a car crash, and yes, the straps were supposed to be that tight to hold her in.
Unfortunately, people think they aren't driving fast enough to do any damage to their kids or themselves if they get in a crash. It's going to take a major campaign and maybe some graphic or crash test dummy videos before people start changing their minds and paying attention to car safety.

Re: China To Introduce New Child Car Seat Law

Car is known as a luxurious vehicle but the seat is very not that much comfortable to the children's. The children's are very small in height so they are not feeling comfortable in those seats. To solve this issue the automobile sector people invented the new seat for the people who have car and like to travel with their children. China introduced this new invention in their car.

Re: China To Introduce New Child Car Seat Law

The new child car safety laws is a creative one we must say. The governments idea to make such law is really appreciable. Children's safety seat is an innoivative one and if we do so then the driver of the car will maintain to concentrate on driving rather than distracting from the driving to take care of the baby. To avoid car crash as well as accidents it is preferable for us to drive the car properly. Because if we face car accident or crash it will bring a lot of pain and a heavier damage to the car. To get out of such issues as mentioned above we have to drive safe and have to stay updated on each and every parts of our vehicle. If we stay updated then we can come to know if any bug takes place inside that car and we can resolve this out. It is a healthy process to follow. I also follow the same process and when I come to know about any bug inside my car I prefer to go for a Mini Cooper repair center in Winston-Salem as I have a Mini Cooper and get my car repaired.

In this modern era cars are used as the basic medium of transportation that everybody use in their day to day life. Everybody starting from youngsters to children are loves to travelling in the car. Every year the more no of childrens are dies while travelling in the car. Because the childs from 1 to 5 year are very small and the seat where they sit are not fit on them. While travelling thier heads are shaking and come accross another seat, thier heads are crashed due to that reason the childrens are suddenly dead. So, to stop this kind of situation china introduce a car safety belts for children. By wearing of this seat belts the children are escape from the hazardous situation.
