This is according to the Road Transport Department (JPJ) under the Road Transport Act 1978 - Motor Vehicles (Safety Seat-belts) (Amendment) Rules 2019. The government has made it compulsory to private vehicles due to the increasing number of cars on the road which may linearly affect the number of accident cases. But the public has one question in mind, how extra safe is a child seat and is it worth the few hundred ringgit extra?
