This study explored how children are restrained when traveling in ride-share vehicles. An observational survey was conducted from July to August 2022. The target population was children from birth to 12 years old transported in ride-share vehicles. About half of children observed were traveling unrestrained and the remainder were either using the vehicle seat belt or some type of child restraint system (CRS). A substantial percentage of infants (46%), toddlers (49%), and children (51%) were traveling unrestrained. The observed CRS use rate was 8.1%, with 41% of restrained children using seat belts.
