More than 100 georgian children died in accidents in the past 4 years. More than 5000 where injured.
In the Global Status Report of Road Safety from 2018, the World Health Organization (WHO) claims that child restraint systems are highly effective in reducing injury and death to child occupants for at least 60%. To increase the usage of child seats, the WHO therefore strongly recommends to review child restraint laws to international good practice standards.
Georgia has no National Child Restraint Law. It is one of the countries where child seats are not required. The transport of a child sitting on the knees of an adult is allowed.
But is the lack of a child restraint law really the only reason why parents do not use child seats?
Our Mission: no kid in Georgia should die because its parents did not provide a child seat.
No matter if there is a law.
