Abstract

Observations of child travel were made in Knoxville and Nashville, Tennessee, and Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky about two and one-half years after the Tennessee child restraint law went into force. Use of child restraints anchored by seat belts increased in Tennessee from 8 per cent prior to the law to 29 per cent, compared to a change from 11 to 14 per cent in Kentucky, which does not have a child restraint law. Travel in arms, a hazardous practice permitted by the law, was at the same level in Tennessee and Kentucky as prior to passage of the law.
