1. If children travel in a motor vehicle while in the care of the service:

  • They are restrained as required by land transport legislation.
  • Required adult: child ratios are maintained.

 

Additional information: The legal requirements according to land transport legislation for restraining children in a vehicle include:

  • Infant restraint: birth to at least one year of age (up to13kg)

  • Upon enrolment if providing transport for children to and/or from the service.
