Child seat campaigner seeks law change
An e-petition has been set up as part of a Facebook-led campaign to convince the House of Commons to bring in legislation to make extended rear facing child restraints mandatory in the UK.
The campaign has been created by Linsey Myres, a member of the public, to raise awareness of the safety benefits of rear facing child car seats. So far the Facebook page has 639 ‘likes’.
The e-petition says that too many children are killed or seriously injured in road collisions and that experts believe that rear facing car seats, for children up to a minimum age of four, would reduce the severity of crashes.
The petition requests that the House of Commons make extended rear facing child restraints mandatory in the UK for children in this age bracket, due to the safety benefits they can achieve.
Currently, the fledgling e-petition has 227 signatures, but the closing date is not until August 2012.
