BEIJING -- The use of child safety seats has been made mandatory in China's newly revised minor protection law which took effect on Tuesday.

The Law on the Protection of Minors stipulates that parents or other guardians of minors should take measures including installing child safety seats and educating their underage children to obey traffic regulations to protect minors from traffic accidents.

The stipulation will also serve as guidance for the revision of the road traffic safety law and the refinement of local minor protection rules, said Zhu Zhengfu, a political advisor specialized in legal affairs.

Experts suggest that apart from safety seats, efforts from families, schools, traffic departments, market regulators and other parties are needed to ensure road safety for children.
