CSS – Child Passenger Safety Survey in Cluj-Napoca, Romania 2013-2015

Poza - Child Passenger Safety Survey in Cluj-Napoca, RomaniaTraffic injuries are a major cause of morbidity and mortality affecting the whole population, in all ages and gender, all around the world. In Romania, the problem is even more important as the legislative framework includes only minimal requirements regarding the use of child safety restraints and safety systems while driving. Moreover, there is a lack of programs and initiatives in addressing this issue as a whole. In a recent descriptive study conducted in Romania analyzing the road traffic crashed that have occurred during 2010 in Cluj-County, from a total on 71 children aged under 12 years of age, only three of them where using any type of child seats, and only 49% of the passengers were using seat-belts.

Aims
1) To investigate the usability of child restraining systems in Romania when travelling as
passengers in a car, and
2) To investigate the knowledge and attitudes towards car safety among parents with a child age 12
and under.
