Can I drive while the children are sleeping?

Faire dormir les enfants pendant qu'on roule en camping-carThe Canadian Highway Code requires all passengers in an RV (or car) to fasten their seat belts while the vehicle is driving.

A violation will earn you a fine of $80 to $100.

The number of passengers inside a vehicle must not exceed the number of seat belts.

It is therefore prohibited by law to allow children to sleep in a bed in the RV while driving at night (or in the day), as they will not be wearing seat belts.

It is also a question of common sense. An accident can happen at any time. Do you really want to run the risk of losing someone you love just because they weren't wearing a seat belt?

Wearing a seat belt is the best protection for all vehicle occupants.
