In the December 2007 RACV Child Restraint Evaluation Program, the RACV and the NRMA conducted a Child Restraint Evaluation Program which looked into the current availability and safety of Child car seats, These were tabled in a report and is referenced in the report. Unfortunately the Safe-n-Sound maxi Rider Mk II was not included in the evaluation and should be redone to verify the results.

The report is divided into 3 sections; these include:

  • Rearward facing restraints for Babies - For babies up to 9kgs; 70cm long, from birth to 6 months
  • Forward-facing restraints for young children - For young children 8-18kgs; from 6-9 months to approximately 5 years
  • Booster seats for older children - For children 14-26kgs; until they are large enough to be safely secured by an adult seatbelt.
