D9: Report reviewing issues of CRS use (TRL)

The literature review consists of a world-wide review of literature and information about child restraint system (CRS) use and misuse. In addition the report presents the findings from 2 observational field studies, which were carried out in France and Spain.

The report incorporates national reviews of literature from the project member states (UK, Spain, Sweden, France and Germany) along with a review from some non-European countries. Issues addressed in this report, wherever possible, include the extent of use of different types of child restraint system, levels of inappropriate use (e.g. wrong CRS for size of child) and levels of misuse. This information was gathered from government figures, safety organisations, local government offices, parent groups, police forces etc. The objective of this report is to improve understanding of the issues concerning CRS use that may help in the recognition of modes of misuse and inappropriate use to enable more accurate reconstruction of accidents. Also, to provide a better understanding the potential implications of such factors on CRS design and on child safety as a whole.

In addition to the lecture review, two surveys of use were undertaken. These field studies were carried out in France and Spain. The results include data about the various types of misuse observed according to parameters such as CRS groups (0+, G1)types and duration of trips, etc..
