Child Restraint

Postby Jay_s » April 20th, 2019, 10:34 pm

Hi All, a quick one. I was driving with family today and baby seat belt was restrained correctly but seems like it was slightly loose. Son took both his hands out of the shoulder strap while he was in deep sleep. Me and my partner were in front seat and didn't realize that baby took his hands out.
As a routine check police was stopping all the cars and I was also pulled over and fined for this and got double demerits.
Just to check if i can fight the case, i checked online and found this on maritime site. There are 2 categories "SEAT BELTS Drive with passenger under 6 mths not in fastened/adjusted/approved restraint" and "SEAT BELTS
Drive with passenger older than 6 mths but less than 4 yrs not restrained" . My son is 3yrs old.
Can I appeal this in court. I was concentrating on the road but not on child. Please suggest.

Thanks
JS
