Effects of Seating Position and Appropriate Restraint Use on the Risk of Injury to Children in Motor Vehicle Crashes

Currently, many states are upgrading their child restraint laws in order to include provisions for the use of age-appropriate restraints through 6 to 8 years of age, with some states requiring rear seating for children, which enable the laws to be in closer alignment with best practices recommendations. The objective of this article was to evaluate the relationships of seating position and restraint status to the risk of injury among children in passenger vehicle crashes.
