AIR BAGS AND OUT-OF-POSITION CHILDREN - A SURVEY

In a visual survey of 4602 child passengers traveling in 3149 automobiles only 123 children - less than 3% - were observed in front seat positions in which they would be contacted by an air bag early in its deployment. Several recent technological developments suggesting that even these few out-of-position children can be protected by air bags are discussed. The importance of providing "passive" (automatic) protection for children traveling in automobiles is emphasized.(a) /TRRL/
