  1. Fulltext. Increasing car seat use for toddlers from inner-city families.

    Article - En anglais



    The purpose of this project was to increase toddler car seat use in low-income minority families.


    Families from Newark, NJ, were divided into two study groups.

    Both groups were given car seats ; one group also received education regarding car restraint use.

    Observations were made of car seat use before car seat distribution, 4 to 5 months later, and 1 year later.


    Car seat use increased markedly immediately after distribution and remained high 1 year later, regardless of education.


    These results indicate that distributing car seats results in long-term use among a currently low-use population.
