My Comments – THE NATIONAL – Dt. 12.09.2010 – Should car seats for children be mandatory?

The Corniche Hospital in Abu Dhabi has now given away 1,500 car seats and educated parents on road safety. But should the seats be compulsory for parents anyway?

My comments as follows:

I think the law should be made strict to ensure all the rear passengers wear the seat belt in cars and all the passengers wear the seat belts in 15 seater vans. The habit of wearing the seat belt is very rarely practised here. In fact car seats or atleast seat belts should be the preferred mandatory options by default by all for own safety reason.
