Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death in the United States for children between the ages of two and 14. In Indiana, over 5,000 child injuries occurred in motor vehicle collisions in 2007, 49 of which were fatal. This report presents results from the 2007 Indiana Child Restraint Survey conducted by the Automotive Safety Program, Riley Hospital for Children and the Indiana University School of Medicine, Division of Biostatistics. Findings cover areas of child restraint device usage, child passenger seating positions, and driver awareness of recommended child passenger safety standards and legislation.
