    Carseat good/poor installation: Crash statistics?

    A friend of mine asked me a question the other day and I said I'd try to find an answer for him.

    He wanted to know if there were any crash statistics showing the difference between correctly and incorrectly installed carseats - wondering if there was anything out there that really "proved" having the carseat 100% correctly installed really made any difference in a crash.

    As it is, he and his wife switch the carseats out from her car to his daily, and they admit they are very sloppy about it.
