Hi All, Was pulled over for usual RBT, that was all clear. Then the police officer noticed my nearly 4 year old one who sits right behind driving seat. Managed to get her hands out and she was not covered from shoulder strap in her child seat.. The seat was properly fitted and also she was restrained/locked in the seat. but shoulder strap was not on. The officer fined me for not properly restraining the child over 6 months and below 4 years. When I refer to: http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/cgi-bin/index.cgi?fuseaction=demeritpoints.browsehandler&category=Seat belts & restraints&offence= SEAT BELTS Drive with passenger under 6 mths not in fastened/adjusted/approved restraint SEAT BELTSDrive with passenger older than 6 mths but less than 4 yrs not restrained Am I correct in interpreting that I should not have been fined as it is quite clear she was restrained while in the car, but not properly fastened? Can I ask for leniency or take it to court? This was fist time I have ever been fined for seat belt/child restraint offence and feel I have been hard done by with double demerits and I had done the right thing when I started driving.
