National Highway Traffic Safety Administration researchers are seeking approval (.pdf file) from the Office of Management and Budget to study correct and incorrect use of child safety seats.

Researchers also plan to interview drivers about their knowledge and perceptions of child restraint systems. The goal of the study is to assess the levels of child restraint system use and misuse for children riding in passenger vehicles and examine whether the levels of use and misuse are related to driver characteristics, their passengers or their vehicles. If approved, the study would take place over a three- to five-month period in spring and summer 2011.
