Abstract [sv]

A traffic safety campaign among parents with children in the age of 0-–3 years

has been evaluated. The

study indicates that the campaign has, in some respects, had a positive

effect on the frequency of the use

of child safety restraints. Nevertheless, more has to be done, until every

child in the region uses the

recommended type of restraint.

A questionnaire has been sent to a random sample of all those families, which

have voluntarily joined

a traffic safety club, connected to the campaign. Questions about the

background of the family and the

use and misuse of child restraints and seatbelts have been asked. Questions

were also asked concerning

traffic safety information received and knowledge about rules and

recommendations. The families have

been divided into three age groups, on the basis of the recommended child

restraint for each age group.

The answers have been compared with the results of an earlier study, among a

random sample of all

families in the same region of Sweden.

The most commonly requested piece of information that the parents asked for

were those statistics

relating to child injuries connected to types of restraint. No significant

differences were found in the

percentages of families who reported that they had received or looked for

information. One conclusion

drawn was that the information available had not been received or absorbed by

all the families surveyed,

which gives cause of concern and necessitates further action.

The evaluated campaign was carried out within the frame of “Säkereken”, a

traffic safety program in

Blekinge, Sweden.
