RESTRAINING CHILDREN IN CARS: THE USE OF SYSTEMS AT DIFFERENT AGES

This paper was presented at Child Restraint Seminar, Melbourne, 1St April, 1978, organised by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, Road Trauma Committee. This paper outlines age differences in restraint use among children under eight years of age, based on a community survey of child restraint usage and attitudes in Sydney. The problem of the low restraint usage rate for children under eight is defined more precisely as three separate problems relating to three separate age groups. The paper explores the reasons why children between three and eight years of age are so often unprotected or poorly protected as car occupants, when the majority of younger children enjoy a high level of restraint protection.
