11 May 2021 09:33pm
The Government should provide two child car seats to every taxi and private-hire car for free, said MP Louis Ng in an adjournment motion in Parliament on Tuesday (May 11). He also suggested working with hospitals to increase access to and use of infant car seats by parents. In response, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Transport Baey Yam Keng explained why the use of child seats in taxis has not been mandated. He said Mr Ng's proposals would be shared with agencies and stakeholders, and expressed full support for Mr Ng’s call for a campaign to build a culture of using child car seats.
