A child that is properly secured in an approved child restraint is less likely to be injured or killed in a car crash than one who is not.
The new national child restraint laws state in Australia:
- Children younger than six months must be secured in a rearward facing restraint.
- Children aged six months to under four years must be secured in either a rear or forward facing restraint.
- Children aged four years to under seven years must be secured in forward facing child restraint or booster seat.
- Children younger than four years cannot travel in the front seat of a vehicle with two or more rows.
- Children aged four years to under seven years cannot travel in the front seat of a vehicle with two or more rows, unless all other back seats are occupied by children younger than seven years in a child restraint or booster seat.

If 4 year old was killed, I wouldn't want to live either.I need a Valium washed down with wine!
