CR comments to NHTSA in support of survey on use of car booster seats

Consumer Reports (CR) welcomes the opportunity to submit comments to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regarding the agency’s intention to request Office of Management and Budget renewal of an approved information collection pertaining to the National Survey of the Use of Booster Seats (NSUBS). CR supports extension of this information collection, which is due to expire in May 2019, and offers several additional comments.

NSUBS advances the interests of consumers and NHTSA’s safety mission. CR relies on data supplied by this survey and others to assess real-world use of booster seats and child seats in motor vehicles. This analysis, in turn, helps CR prioritize topics to include in our published content, product testing, and ratings, and also helps us develop related and broader educational content related to child passenger safety.
