Despite more than a decade of mandatory child restraint laws, deaths and injuries of child passengers remain high. This review presents data from three sources, and addresses likely causes for this anomalous result. The purpose is to provide direction for future programs, to contrast these data with the numbers once used as "national usage rates", and to stimulate rapid investigation of technological improvements to mitigate some of the barriers to correct, consistent protection of young children in motor vehicles. (A) For the covering abstract of the compendium see IRRD 880073.
