Child Safety in Motor Vehicles Act now a law

President Rodrigo Duterte has signed into law Republic Act 11229, or the Child Safety in Motor Vehicles Act, which requires motor vehicle owners to use child restraint systems when traveling with children.

“It shall be unlawful for the driver of a covered vehicle not to properly secure at all times a child in a child restraint system while the engine is running or transporting the child on any road, street, or highway unless the child is at least 150 centimeters or 59 inches in height and is properly secured using the regular seatbelt,” the new law states.

Under the law, several private organizations and government agencies, including the Department of Transportation and the Department of Education, must undertake regular nationwide information, education, and communication campaigns within six months from its passage.

These campaigns must include information on the proper installation, use, and maintenance of child restraint systems.

The law also authorizes the Transportation Department to tap any government agency, including the Philippine National Police, for support in implementing the act.

Within six months, the DOTr, in consultation with the Department of Interior and Local Governments, the Department of Trade and Industry, the Department of Health, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority, the PNP Highway Patrol Group, and the Council for the Welfare of Children, must also publicize the implementing rules and regulations on the child restraint systems.

The law will take effect 15 days after its publication in the Official Gazette or in two national newspapers of general circulation.
