Less than half of pediatric car passengers suffering injuries from motor vehicle crashes were restrained, with the lowest rates among blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans

Minority children are less likely to wear a car seat belt, putting them at greater risk of severe injury. For some reason, minority parents are less likely than white ones to put much emphasis on their children's safety when driving. Could this be due to the fact that blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans have lower average IQs than whites?
