3 Children in the back of a Clubman - impossible?
Ok everyone I don't think this has been covered elsewhere so here goes.
I have recently bought a Cooper S Clubman which has the 2 isofix mountings in the rear as well as the 3 seat belts.
The challenge I have is to get 3 children in the back legally and relatively comfortably.
The problem is the youngest is 1 and as such is still in a full seat, whereas the others are 4 and 8 and can use boosters, however as you can imagine these 3 seats do not fit together.
As I understand it UK law does allow one of them to sit without a booster if there is not room, but I would not consider this as safe and to be honest is not comfortable due to the width of the other seats.
In my mind the sensible solution would be a "twin" booster" to sit alongside the full seat but I cannot find anything on the market.
Alternatively I could have something made, however I suspect this would not be legal as I believe there are guidelines regarding the positioning of the lap belt.
