The main survey result was that the rate of appropriate restraint use was between 64% and 72% on such trips, (according to weight criteria in the Australian and New Zealand Standard on child restraints for motor vehicles). Only 1% were completely unrestrained. Most of those who were not restrained appropriately had prematurely progressed to an adult seatbelt.
