Child Restraints in Cars - An Approach to Safe Family Transportation
Four comprehensive surveys dealing with child safety problems in cars have been carried out at AB Volvo in Sweden.
Results concerning injury frequency and severity and different types of injuries are discussed with respect to in which mode children travel as car occupants.
On the basis of this experience, we recommend how children of different ages should travel as passengers in cars. Our general recommendation is that children should never travel unrestrained.
