Description

A poster and leaflet have been produced to encourage the use of seat belts and child restraints by Indigenous children. Nearly four times as many Aboriginal children than non-Aboriginal children are hurt in car crashes because they do not wear seat belts. The leaflet shows the different child restraints which should be used by children when traveling in cars. Contact details for further information on the use, selection and fitting of child restraints are also provided.
The leaflet and poster were produced in Western Australia by the Western Australian Municipal Association, Commonwealth Department of Transport and Regional Services, Roadwise and the Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service Inc.
The poster and leaflet are no longer printed or distributed. Work is underway to develop an updated version of this resource.
