Whether you're a parent, relative, friend or carer, if you carry a child in your car you need to be aware of the law. In a Good Morning Britain One Poll, research shows that despite the law being in place for eight years, many parents still don't understand it - potentially putting children at risk and themselves liable to fines and prosecution.
Today we put some parents to the test to see how much they understand about belting up their kids safely and we speak to Transport Minister Robert Goodwill.
The Road Safety Act came into force in 2006 which said: All children travelling in a car must use the correct car seat appropriate to their weight or height, until they are either
135cm in height or 12 years in age - whichever they reach first. After this point, they must use an adult seat belt.
The same rules apply for children with disabilities, unless a doctor confirms they're exempt on medical grounds. Disabled children can use seat belts or car seats specially designed for their needs.
The big thing to know is, it's the responsibility of the car driver to ensure that all children under the age of 14 are using the correct restraint. After the age of 14, it is down to the passenger and they are liable.
