Japan promotes ISOFIX use to help protect children

Japan’s National Agency for Automotive Safety & Victims’ Aid (NASVA) has conducted a public survey to focus attention on the importance of properly installing child seats. A total of 49 journalists participated in the event, which was also attended by manufacturer spokespeople.

A series of frontal crash tests highlighted the difference in safety between child restraints fitted correctly using ISOFIX mountings and those fitted less securely using only the car’s seatbelts. Other tests highlighted the risks to children in car seats caused by sudden braking.
