The Government should do more to enforce the use of seat belts for children in cars because it could can save their lives in accidents, a DA spokesman said on Sunday.
DA member of parliament Stuart Farrow, the party's spokesman on transport, said it was of "great concern" that 84 percent of children in vehicles on South African roads did not use seat belts or child seats.
He said the Red Cross Children's Hospital in Cape Town treats about 20 children a month for injuries from car accidents and 80 percent of these had not been wearing seat belts.
Farrow said the DA would submit questions to parliament and ask how the department of transport was targeting the failure to wear seat belts and how many people had been fined for this.
"Visible policing will go a long way to ensuring that road users comply with traffic rules and parents should be sensitised to the importance of using seat belts," Farrow said.
"Studies show that using a properly fitted child seat or restraint can reduce fatal injuries by up to 75 percent.
"There is an urgent need for the implementation of strategies to increase the use of seat belts to reduce injuries and fatalities." - Sapa
