Wherever you're traveling to in Italy, the safety of our clients are always our top priority! It's also comforting to know that the law is on your side too!
If you’re traveling with your own car to Italy the rules are very simple: children (and all passengers) must be secured according to EU legislation.
If you’re hiring or borrowing a car, the following check list will help to avoid any unnecessary complications with the Polizia di Stato:
- All passengers must wear any fitted seat belts
- Children under 36 kg (97 pounds) or 150 cm (4 ft, 9 in) must use appropriate child restraints, as follows.
- Babies weighing up to 4 kg (9 pounds), must be in a rear facing car seat attached to the back seat.
- If your child weighs less than 18 kg (48.5 pounds) they must use a child car seat.
- If your child weighs more than 18kg (48.5 pounds), they can use a booster seat bringing them up to the right height to safely use the car’s fitted seat belts.
