Abstract

In the United States, more children die from motor vehicle crashes than any other cause. Research has demonstrated that children ages 4-8 have a significantly reduced risk of injury if they are restrained in booster seats rather than adult seatbelts. Despite current recommendations, few children in this age group are properly restrained. Health care providers can help increase booster seat use by educating parents, participating in community campaigns, and advocating for mandatory booster seat laws.
