Plunket, ACC and families become ‘partners in car safety’ as new law turns one

Today (1 November) marks the first birthday of a new law requiring all children aged seven and under to be secured in a car seat or booster seat when travelling in a vehicle - and to mark the milestone, ACC and Plunket are encouraging families to invest in their children’s safety. On 1 November 2013, the law extended the age that children must be in a car seat or booster seat from their fifth birthday to their seventh birthday. In response, Plunket and ACC joined forces to subsidize over 10,000 car seats for community services card holders, supporting families to keep their kids safe in cars.
