The Impact of Child Safety Restraint Legislation on Child Injuries in Police-Reported Motor Vehicle Collisions in British Columbia: an Interrupted Time Series Analysis

This study reports on the effectiveness of child safety restraint legislation on child injury rates in British Columbia. Data from police reports were used to compare injury rates, booster seat use, and seating position of child passengers before and after legislation was passed. An interrupted time series analysis was used to control for long-term trends. Results indicate a lower rate of injury after the legislation was enacted.
