Child seats have been around for over 50 years. So something has been done for a long time for child safety in the car. This number is all the more astonishing because it was only in 1993 that it became a legal requirement in germany to transport the offspring in a child car seat, a so-called restraint system. Since then much has changed. But what are the current laws and standards?? We provide an overview of child safety in the car.

Sitting still? Better not! Few children want to spend hours in the car. That makes it all the more important to find the right child seat that fits the child. It should not only be comfortable, but above all guarantee the safety of the little passengers. Nowadays, a baby car seat is at the top of the list of purchases for parents-to-be. Already on the ride home from the hospital it is used for the first time. This seems so self-evident today that it’s hard to imagine that a child car seat wasn’t mandatory not so long ago.

Car drivers or motorcyclists who are found to have been involved in illegal racing no longer get off lightly: since 2017, illegal car racing has been considered a criminal offense and no longer a regulatory offense.
