Since the beginning of 2017, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia is introducing new requirements for the carriage of children in the passenger compartment. It will only be allowed to use special child car seats (appropriate for the age of the baby) and it is prohibited to use any "other restraint" such as a belt adapter.

Under the new rules, it will be permissible to use only certified child car seats for transporting children. The safety of car seats for transporting toddlers and schoolchildren has been confirmed by ongoing tests and crash tests.

After 7 years, you can ride in the front seat

At the same time, a new rule is being introduced related to the age restriction of transported children. So, if a child is under 7 years old, then it can only be transported in the back seat of a car and only a car seat can be used for this purpose. However, it is important for parents to choose not just a car seat, but one whose design strictly corresponds to the age and height of the child.

If the child is already 7 years old, then it can be transported in the front seat of the car and in the back. At the same time, when transporting in the back seat, it is enough for him to be wearing a regular seat belt. A child between 7 and 12 years old can travel in the front seat, but this is prohibited without a special car seat or booster marked for the appropriate age.

Penalties and fines

For violators of the new rules for the transportation of children, the amount of the fine is 3 thousand rubles.

Now you can not leave children alone in the car

Another innovation concerns the ban on leaving babies under 7 years old alone in the car. If the parents are noticed that they locked the child and left, even for a few minutes, then such parents will be fined 500 rubles. Such measures will prevent the death of children from hypothermia, suffocation and overheating in the car.

These changes have already been made to the Traffic Rules (government decree No. 1090), and will come into force on January 1, 2017.
