Child Restraint

​City of Canterbury Bankstown has expanded its relationship with Roads and Maritime Services to provide more opportunities for parents to make sure their children are safely restrained in their vehicles.

Administrator Richard Colley said child restraint safety checking days are being conducted by authorised inspectors at Bass Hill (CARES facility) or Council’s Campsie Customer Service Centre.

"The reality is that if a child’s restraint isn’t fitted correctly, it could lead to serious or fatal injury in the event of a car crash," Mr Colley said.

"Having them checked is a simple measure parents, grandparents and guardians can do to ensure peace of mind."

The expansion of the program follows Council’s decision to end its child seat hiring service, which is now used by less than 10 families a year.

"We have found parents and guardians are preferring to purchase their own seats and capsules," Mr Colley said.

"Our child restraint seats and capsules are due for replacement but, based on their usage, we believe the funds would now be better invested in the RMS program which used more widely."

The next Child Restraint Fitting Day will be held on Friday 17 March. Bookings are essential, so parents and guardians are encouraged to call 9707 9424.

Hiring services are still available at Auburn (Auburn District Hospital), Chullora (Babyland Baby Goods Hire Service) and Blacktown (Little’s Child Restraints).
