Hi lovely ladies,
I seem to remember reading in the booklet that they sent out last year with the changes to the child restraint laws that whether it not a child longer needs a booster is now based on weight as opposed to age.
My nephew is 7 and is only 18 kilos and is not in any sort or booster or seat. My sis is telling me he doesn't need one as he is over 7 but I was sure I read in the new laws that for a child to be out of a booster they must weigh 30 kgs. So if you child is 7 and still under 30 kgs they will still have to be in a booster until they reach to weight limit.
I have checked on the Vic roads website but I can't find that info.
Does anyone have the details or have I got it wrong?
