2018 Statewide Child Passenger Restraint Use Report Released
FDOT Highlights Statewide Child Passenger Restraint Use In 2018
Today, as the nation recognizes Child Passenger Safety Week, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) released the 2018 Child Restraint Survey report showing 94% compliance among our youngest and most vulnerable road users.
The 2018 Child Restraint Survey report details the results of a state-wide observational survey conducted to determine child passenger restraint use in Florida.
The survey indicated that 84 percent of children, ages 0-12, were restrained across the state of Florida. Results indicate that the majority of Floridians understand the importance of properly restraining their children—especially infants—with 94% of observed children age zero to three being restrained. Florida also saw increases in rear-facing carrier use, forward-facing car seat use and booster seat use.
