Title: Effectiveness of Child Passenger Safety Information for the Safe Transportation of Children.

Form No.: NHTSA Form 1174.

Type of Review: Regular.

Respondents: Parents and caregivers of children less than 13 years of age will respond to a series of questions after viewing child passenger safety messages.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 600 participants will be recruited for the testing sessions.

Estimated Time Per Response: 75 minutes per testing session.

Abstract: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposes to collect information from parents and caregivers of children less than 13 years of age about their knowledge, behavior, and perceptions of various child passenger safety (CPS) messages. Demographic information about the participants will also be collected. Participation in the study will be voluntary. Parents and caregivers will be recruited at various urban, suburban, and rural locations where they often go with child passengers (e.g., child care centers). They will be asked to participate in the study which will require them to go to a computer lab center, read CPS messages and respond to questions about these messages using touch-screen computers to reduce survey length and minimize recording errors. No personally identifiable information will be collected during the study. NHTSA will use the findings from this proposed collection of information to better understand how information and perceptions of CPS messages influence parents and caregivers to seek the most appropriate restraint systems for their children (less than 13 years of age). Findings of the study may be used to revise current CPS messages being publicized in the nation.
