In Australia, transport injuries are the most common cause of child injury death and second most common cause of injury related hospital admission for children aged 0 to 14 years . In 2009-10, transport injuries claimed the lives of 22 children aged 0 – 4 years, and 34 children aged 5 – 14 years. In addition 843 children aged 0 – 4 years, and 6,193 children aged 5 – 14 years were admitted to hospital for treatment following transport injuries in 2012-13.
