Quebecers with children 9-years-old and younger have just over two weeks to conform to a new Highway Security Code regulation.

Keeping with most other provinces, Quebec will extend mandatory use of child seats until the child reaches a height of 145 centimetres (4-foot-7), which generally occurs around the age of 9. The new law will come into effect April 18.

A spokesperson for the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ), Mario Vaillancourt, explained a poorly adjusted seat belt can have grave consequences in the case of an accident. It is essential to elevate a child with a booster seat so the belt comes to the level of the shoulders and hips, because the bones of the clavicle and the pelvic region are best able to absorb the shock in the case of an accident. Without a booster seat, a seatbelt can rest on the neck and abdomen, which could result in serious injuries to the neck or internal organs.

Drivers who do not respect the regulation face fines of $80 to $100 and risk losing three demerit points.

According to the SAAQ’s 2017 report, 1,159 children age 10 or less — 651 of them between the ages of 5 and 9 — were involved in an accident while sitting in a vehicle.

In Canada, only Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut do not have similar age requirements for the use of a booster seat.
