Provincial police, Guardia Civil and local police of Navarre be carried out during the next week, from 1 to 7 October, a special campaign on traffic monitoring and control of the use of seat belts and child restraint systems.

The use of safety belts, both seat front and rear, is compulsory in any type of journey, whether short or long, urban, and suburban. The same thing happens with the use of the child restraint systems, which must be adapted to the height and weight of children who use them.


The regional autonomous Government has pointed out that the seat belt is a basic element and fundamental element of road safety, and reduces by half the risk of death in case of accident and that the airbag is not effective if not complemented with its use. “Do not use the seat belt in the rear seats is a big risk, since in a frontal impact, the probability of a or an occupier of that part of the vehicle to hit mortally to another passenger or passenger of the front seats can be up to eight times higher,” he said.

For its part, the inside of the vehicle, you should never bring a child in arms, nor use the same seat belt as that of an adult. You must ensure that the child car seat is properly installed and adjust the headrest and the harnesses in the device as the child grows. It is mandatory the use of child restraint systems for children with a height lower than the 1.35 meters, about 12 years, although it is recommended that you continue using until they are 1.5 meters in height, has been added.
