The National Guidelines for the Safe Restraint of Children Travelling in Motor Vehicles have been developed by Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) and Kidsafe- The Child Accident Prevention Foundation of Australia.

The National Guidelines provide best practice recommendations that have been approved by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and were released in October 2013.

NeuRA and Kidsafe want to see all children as safe as they can be when travelling in cars. Ensuring parents receive straightforward, consistent advice from all sources on how to keep children safe in cars is an important step in making this happen.
