How very Daily Mail.

We're living in a "state" full of dumb people who do actually need telling how to look after their kids.

Having had a child who, when younger, needed a car seat then a booster I can tell you that once that seat has been used half a dozen times the last thing you're gonna want to do is carry the bloody thing round on your back.... it'll be COVERED in milk stains, white chocolate and bits of biscuit!

Big difference.


No it's "or" - Sammy is right.

LOL - If my 152cm 11yr old had to use a booster seat by law I'd need to cut a hole in the roof of my car??!! Doh...!

Anyone with a brain will do all they can to protect their child obviously but the argument/point put forward by golfer is a fair/logical one. Why aren't there seat belts on buses? Why don't they supply booster seats? There are accidents every year on buses up and down the country where people (admittedly mainly older people), have fallen when trying to walk down the bus when it is travelling. If you are towing a caravan you can't have people in the back walking around, so why should that be allowed on public transport?

They are for use when going on holiday and hiring a car abroad. Use the backpack facility for kids to carry their own toys etc. in whilst on plane and when you arrive and need to put in hire car then just chuck the toys into car and use as booster seat instead of having to pay an arm and a leg to hire one.

A 'Touring' bus requires seat belts. A public transport bus carrying passengers around a designated route with regular bus stops doesn't.

we considered one of these for my son as he is looked after by granny while we work and thought it would be good to take with him to her house. i read a lot of bad reviews about straps breaking etc though.
#21
Never mind the price, buses or convenience, the question is, "how safe is it compared to other booster seats?".

It doesn't look special enough for day-to-day.... but very practical. I guess if one doesn't have kids, couldn't hink of a reason to have it.

Yupp totally agree. we spent total hundreds everytime we were on holidays. There's no way we can carry the bulky daily car seats we have for flight cause the extra luggage will cost us more and handling luggage and car seats will be too much. And idea for car pool, also great, then, we don't have to move the existence car seats (taken of the seat belt, locking to the back of the seat). Too much for me to handled alone when the hubby not around with the kids and all :D. Ingenious practical item

Likewise, a 'short' emergancy trip is exempt.

I flew last week and took 2 seats as the kids hand luggage and was told everyone is allowed one FREE piece of oversized HOLD luggage a and as a result didn't need the kids to carry.

With all this in mind, there is no reason that I can see why a travel version of something you probably already have is needed

I now know I can take a child seat on the plane for free, but there was a time when I did not and had to pay to hire booster seats( I have twins) these cost more to hire than to buy!
Why then do travel companies tell us this when we book our holidays, they do know, does it just provide an extra profit a our expense?

I don't know why you would need to be told why as it's common sense but here goes - there are people getting on and off the bus all the time. It is not practicable or possible for the bus driver to check that everyone is using a belt before driving off. Besides, the journey would take more than twice as long if people had to wear a seat belt on the bus. The driver also can't stop you taking off your belt before reaching your stop rensering the whole system unworkable. Also, the bus would have to supply boosters to every child which is just silly - like some of the questions on here!

In a private vehicle, you're usually all going to the same destination without frequent stops for people to get on and off!

I have one of these and it's great when we take the train to see friends. I used to lug my daughter's car seat on the train or walk around when we got there. She loves it with all the space she has to carry her drink etc too. It's good for going abroad as well. Still voted cold because you can get it cheaper.

Read it again.
With it being or, that would mean that your child, being under 12, requires a booster seat.



Sorry fella but you might be misunderstanding the law. If your child is under 135cm regardless of their age they need a booster seat. So I stand by the original wording. ;)

(Edit) This is actually wrong - I've just read the actual law it's Not anyone as I originally posted here - it is age 12 - (which is suprising) - but I won't hide my mistake -
but the actual law is written exactly how it stands in the Op's original post.

Oh thank you for enlightening us with your profound intellect. http://www.easyfreesmileys.com/smileys/free-rolleye-smileys-323.gif As much as you may believe we mere mortals may not be able to comprehend such wonders of the universe, I'm fairly confident that we're all au fait with how a bloody bus operates!

Personally think these are a fantastic idea. I was yelling at the telly when Tom caved in!

They aren't for everyday use - you can get a polystyrene one for about £5 for that. They're for taking when your kids are going out with friends or relatives, to take on holiday so you don't have to rent one at the other end, or to use in taxis....that sort of thing.

Not just useful for car journeys either. I'm going to get one for my six year old to take to the match so that he can see properly - otherwise most of his view is of the bloke in front.

And my understanding of the law has always been that it is whichever you hit first - 135cm or 12 years old!

I think you are supposed to use a booster upto 12 years old, if by that time you are not yet 135mm in height then you should continue to use it until you are, even if that means using a booster at 13.

If your above that height at 11 tho it does however seem daft to still use the seat when you obviously dont need it lol

i always thought it was 135cm or 12, whichever came first

I take your point, I was just making one of my own. The idea of being 'caught short' is a good one, but if you are you'd need to carry this with you ALWAYS to get the benefit.

I just don't like paying for something twice. I think you'll find (if you ask) most private taxi's actually have one in the boot

That is just the airline you used. Most only allow infants under 2 yrs of age to take an item of oversize in the hold.
