Abstract
Objective: This study aimed to examine parents’ awareness of car seats in Saudi Arabia.
Methods: This was a cross-sectional study. Data for this study were collected through a structured self-administered questionnaire distributed among parents with children aged less than seven years in various areas of Saudi Arabia. The survey was conducted from June to September 2023. The questionnaire was developed in english and translated into Arabic, and the parents took 3-5 minutes to complete the questionnaire.
Results: A total of 767 parents took part in the study, and it was discovered that 60.4% used child car seats and a high willingness (93.8%) to use care seats in response to legal violations. The findings discovered significant discrepancies in parental beliefs and behaviors in Saudi Arabia.
Conclusion: Saudi Arabia needs targeted educational programs and interventions to improve parental awareness of using child safety seats and encourage healthy attitudes and behavior.

Key words: Parents, knowledge, attitude, practice, children car seats
