Important-To-Know Statistics • About 90 people died each day in vehicle crashes (NHTSA, 2010). • Vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for children in the United States (NHTSA, 2012). • Restraint use among young children often depends upon driver’s seat belt use. – When driver is buckled, children are restrained 95% of the time. – When driver is unbuckled, children are restrained 67% of the time (National Occupant Protection Use Survey Controlled Intersection Survey, 2011). 1-10
  11. 11. Important-To-Know Statistics (continued) • Child restraints, or car seats, reduce risk of injury by 71 to 82% and reduce risk of death by 28% in comparison to children in seat belts alone. Booster seats reduce risk of nonfatal injuries by 45% among 4 to 8 year-olds (AAA, 2012). • Child restraints are often used incorrectly. One study found that 72% of nearly 3,500 observed car seats and booster seats were misused in a way that could be expected to increase a child’s risk of injury during a crash (NHTSA, 2006). 1-11
  12. 12. Important-To-Know Statistics (continued) • In 2010, it is estimated that 303 children under 5 were saved as a result of restraint use. From 1975 through 2010, an estimated 9,611 lives were saved by child restraints (car seats/booster seats/seat belts) for children under 5 in passenger vehicles (NHTSA, 2010). 1-12
