Road safety professionals in Scotland are to be given in-car safety training and information this week from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

Delegates on a child car seat training course are to gain practical experience of selecting and installing child seats, while information on a number of child car seats and restraints will also be provided.

Kathleen Braidwood, RoSPA Scotland’s road safety officer, said: “Around 15 children up to the age of 11 are killed while travelling in cars in Britain each year, with around 225 being seriously injured.

“While there is an increase in the use of child seats and restraints, parents need to ensure they are properly fitted and regularly adjusted.”

Ms Braidwood hopes that more physical training and information will lead to youngsters travelling more safely on the roads of Scotland.

Such information will help to protect young people when on the roads, and are extremely important in order to prevent injury.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801575569-ADNFCR
