Club News: Choosing the right car seat in The Netherlands

Publication date: 10 September 2014

The World Health Organisation has revealed that infant seats, child seats and booster seats can reduce child deaths by 54-80% in the event of a crash. In The Netherlands, research also shows that approximately 73% of parents use child seat incorrectly. In an effort to improve the safety of children in cars, the Dutch Club, ANWB, has been carrying out an awareness campaign about a variety of issues that can affect children in traffic, from bike safety to car seats. 


Based on the Club’s data, in The Netherlands alone, 15% of children have incorrect seat sizes and 33% of seats are not attached correctly. On top of that, it found that up to 41% of children are not properly secured into their child seats. The Club has compiled extensive information on the importance of choosing, attaching and securing child seats and also introduces a variety of child seats that are approved by the European safety standard ECE R44/03 and ECE R44/04.
