The Danger of Premature Graduation to Seat Belts for Young Children

The objective of this study is to determine the risk of significant injury associated with premature graduation of young (2- to 5-year old) children to seat belts from child restraint systems (CRS). It describes how premature graduation of young children from CRS to seat belts puts them at a greatly increased risk of injury in crashes. A major benefit of CRS is a reduction in head injuries, potentially attributable to a reduction in the amount of head excursion in a crash.
