Become a safer driver of kids

Kids & Cars is a safety awareness education program designed for primary and secondary carers of children, with a focus on safety in and around cars. The program runs for approximately one hour and is free of charge to Queensland community groups and organisations.

The Kids & Cars program covers topics including:

  • Areas of risk associated with school zones
  • Driver distractions
  • Unrestrained passengers and items in the car
  • Driveway safety
  • Child restraint safety including choosing an appropriate and safe restraint for children
  • Current child restraint laws and regulations

We also demonstrate how to correctly fit child restraints into a vehicle using a specially designed child restraint demonstration model.
