This is a 12 pages "Road Safety Awareness Pamphlet" describing which seatbelts (restraints) to use for children in different age/weight groups.
In Oman each year many children are killed or injured in road crashes. Most of these injuries could have been avoided by using a correctly fitted International Standards approved baby restraint, child restraint or seat belt.
Your children must use restraints to be safe in a crash. Restraints are necessary even when driving at low speeds or on short trips.
Your children are not safe simply because they are in the back seat.
No matter how carefully you drive, an unexpected crash can still happen. By using restraints you and your children have the best possible protection when riding in a car. Remember to use them always.
