  1. Driveway-related child pedestrian injuries : a case-control study.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives

    To examine risk factors for driveway-related child pedestrian injuries.

    Design

    A community based case-control study.

    Setting.

    The Auckland region of New Zealand.

    Participants

    Cases (n=53) were children killed or hospitalized as a result of a driveway-related pedestrian injury, in the Auckland region over a period of 2 years and 2 months.

    Controls (n=159) were an age-matched random sample of the child population of the Auckland region.

    Results

    The absence of physical separation of the driveway from the children's play area was associated with a threefold increase in the risk of driveway-related child pedestrian injury (OR=3.50 ; 95% CI 1.38,8.92).

    Children living in homes with shared driveways were also at significantly increased risk (OR=3.24 ; 95% CI 1.22,8.63).

    The population attributable risk associated with the absence of physical separation of the driveway from the children's play area was 50.0% (95% CI 24.7,75.3).

    Conclusion

    The fencing of residential driveways as a strategy for the prevention of driveway-related child pedestrian injuries deserves further attention.
