COMPLIANCE WITH THE CHILD PASSENGER PROTECTION LAW: EFFECTS OF A LOANER PROGRAM FOR LOW-INCOME MOTHERS
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of a child restraint device (CRD) loaner program on the attitudes and behaviors of low-income mothers. Mothers in a service ward of a Chattanooga hospital were assigned systematically to treatment groups; each mother was offered the opportunity to obtain a CRD by one of three options: (1) using personal resources, (2) renting for $3 or (3) borrowing at no cost. Questionnaires were completed by 109 mothers at the hospital; 41 of these mother completed a second questionnaire 6 to 12 weeks later. Face-to-face interviews were conducted with 25 of the mothers.
