DUBAI: There is no doubt that a correctly fitting car seat greatly reduces the risk of harm to a child involved in a road traffic accident (RTA). However with a plethora of different styles and designs available, what should a parent consider when buying one?
When choosing a seat, try a few different models. It is a good idea to ask if staff have been trained in fitting them and listen to their advice.
Check whether the car has “iosfix” connectors. These are designed to make fitting the seat easier and most modern cars have them.
