Data Collection & Research
KidsAndCars.org (KAC) has changed the entire transportation data collection philosophy, process and structure in this country.
For over a decade, KAC has been the only group in the US collecting data and conducting research on nontraffic incidents.
Nontraffic incidents include injuries or deaths that occur in or around a vehicle; but take place off of public roads or highways mainly in parking lots or driveways.
These types of incidents include, but are not limited to; backovers, frontovers, heat stroke, power window strangulation or amputation, vehicles inadvertently knocked into gear, trunk entrapment, seat belt strangulation and underage drivers.
KidsAndCars.org is now recognized as the #1 authority about emerging and existing nontraffic incidents that injure or kill children. KidsAndCars.org leadership team co-authored a first of it’s kind study (Unintentional non-traffic injury and fatal events: Threats to children in and around vehicles) published in Traffic Injury Prevention in 2017.
