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.
