Last year, 6,166 people died in 211,662 traffic accidents in Korea (source: Chosun Ilbo). Korea ranked 27th out of 29 OECD countries when it comes to traffic fatalities in 2007. This is one of the reasons why I always insist on using a car seat for my son wherever we go. There is a law on the use of car seats here but you’d still see babies and kids seating on their parent’s lap in cars.
Since my son is now two years old, he’s now in a >convertible car seat that he could use until he’s 4. I’d have to admit that my son cried a lot in his car seat when he was a baby. However, I really insisted that he should be in it whenever we travel.
Have a child? Make sure you use a car seat for them.
