Additionally, the seat must be appropriate for the child's weight and size, and must be fitted correctly in the vehicle.

Additionally, repeat offenders or individuals who cause serious injury or death while driving Crawley car rentals under the influence may face more severe penalties, such as longer prison sentences and permanent license revocation. It is important for all drivers to be aware of the dangers of drunk driving and to take measures to prevent it, such as planning ahead for alternative transportation options if they plan to consume alcohol.
