THE IMPACT OF A CHILD PASSENGER RESTRAINT LAW AND A PUBLIC INFORMATION AND EDUCATION PROGRAM ON CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY IN TENNESSEE
The report provides an analysis of the impact of child passenger protection legislation and a public information and education (PI&E) program on child passenger safety in Tennessee. The evaluation of the PI&E program involved the measurement of the effectiveness of two levels of PI&E activity by comparing target areas having a comprehensive PI&E treatment with areas having lower level of activity. The effectiveness was measured by collecting usage data in five urban areas and three rural areas of Tennessee. Changes in child restraint device usage rates are measured across time and between the two levels of PI&E activity. Discriminant analysis and partial correlation analysis are used to develop profiles of parents/guardians who use or do not use child restraint devices.
