CHILD RESTRAINT INFORMATION IN THE NATIONAL AUTOMOTIVE SAMPLING SYSTEM CRASHWORTHINESS DATA SYSTEM

This paper presents a study of the involvement of child safety seats in towed light vehicles (car, light truck, or van) involved in a police reported crash. All of the analysis is based solely upon this data. The presence of seats and how they are being used is only representative for the police reported tow away crashes indicated, not the vehicle-in-use population at large. Information available for study includes the make and the type of seat (infant, toddler, booster, etc); the proper and improper use of manual and automatic belts with the seats; the orientation of the child seats; and the presence of, addition of, and use or non-use of a harness, tether, or shield with the seat. (A) For the covering abstract see IRRD E102514.
