ACCIDENTS INVOLVING CHILDREN IN VEHICLES, AND PROPOSED SOLUTIONS

UNTERSUCHUNG VON UNFAELLEN MIT KINDERN IM FAHRZEUG UND LOESUNGSVORSCHLAEGE

5000 SERIOUS ACCIDENTS WERE STUDIED WITH A VIEW TO CONSIDERING THE PROTECTION OF CHILDREN IN VEHICLES. THE PRACTICAL SOLUTION FOR INFANTS AGED 0-9 MONTHS IS TO PUT THE CHILD IN A CARRIER ACROSS THE REAR OF THE FRONT SEATS, AND TO FILL IN THE SPACE BETWEEN THE CARRIER AND THE REAR SEAT. FOR CHILDREN AGED 10 MONTHS TO 6 YEARS THE USE OF AN ANCHORED CHILD SEAT FACING BACKWARDS TO THE DIRECTION OF TRAVEL IS RECOMMENDED. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT CHILDREN AGED BETWEEN 7 AND 10 YEARS SHOULD NOT WEAR A SAFETY BELT BUT SHOULD BE CARRIED ONLY ON THE REAR SEATS. THE BEST SOLUTION IS A SEAT CUSHION ANCHORED BY MEANS OF THE EXISTING SAFETY BELT. THE COVERING ABSTRACT FOR THE CONFERENCE IS IRRD NO 311057.
