      Abstract

      Current recommendations regarding children traveling in passenger vehicles equipped with passenger air bags are based, in part, on evidence that the air-bag-related risk of injury and death is higher for children < or =12 years of age. However, the age or body size required to allow a child to be seated safely in front of a passenger air bag is unknown.
