CHILD RESTRAINT DEVICE LOANER PROGRAMS

The child restraint device (CRD) loaner programs in Tennessee were evaluated. Interviews were conducted with loaner program clients in Memphis, Chattanooga, and Knoxville. Clients were asked their opinions in the areas of child passenger safety, health and safety, government intervention, and loaner programs; administrators were asked about program procedures with an emphasis on effectiveness and efficiency. Clients were classified by location of program, method of acquisition, CRD use status, CRD possession status, income level and interview method. Support for mandatory restraint use laws for both children and adults was higher than the rate of restraint use with either group.
