Krockkuddar i bilen: konflikt mellan barns och vuxnas säkerhet?
2003 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
Parents who transport their children in passenger vehicles have to face several questions of how to restrain the child properly and where to place the child. It is difficult to give unambiguous answers to these questions since a number of factors must be considered. The safest place for a child, given that a crash occurs, may not be suitable for other reasons. If you as a driver are alone in the car with a small child, you may want to place the child in the front passenger seat so you will be able to watch over it. The safety equipment of the vehicle is another important factor. The centre rear seat position can be a good place for a somewhat older child on a booster, but this requires that the position is equipped with a lap/shoulder belt and a head restraint. Since children should not be placed in front of an airbag that aims at protecting adults, the issue of transporting children have become even more complicated with the recent introduction of passenger side airbags. If you, nevertheless, want to place the child in the front passenger seat, the airbag must somehow be deactivated. A study of how the conflict between children and airbags are treated by different participants is presented in this report
