Ridesharing Services and Car-Seats: Technological Perceptions and Usage Patterns

by   Subasish Das, et al.

Children are one of the most vulnerable groups in traffic crashes. Child safety seats (CSSs) can decrease the severity of crash outcomes for children. The usage of CSSs has significantly improved in the U.S. over the last 40 years, but it is anticipated that the usage of CSSs in popular ridesharing services (RSSs), such as Uber and Lyft, is not widespread. This paper used a publicly available nationwide internet survey that was designed to gain an understanding of riders and drivers perception toward child passenger safety in regard to technological perception on RSSs. This study performed a rigorous exploratory data analysis to identify the key psychological insights of the survey participants. Additionally, a recently developed dimension-reduction method has been applied to understand the co-occurrence patterns of the responses to gain intuitive insights. It is found that urban-dwelling parents with higher education degrees eventually use RSSs often due to their familiarity of the technological advantages. On the other hand, non-urban and moderately educated parents and guardians are dismissive in using RSSs while having kids with them to ride due to less trust on the technology.
