    The results of the study were that rear seat car occupants who wear a seat belt reduce their risk of death by approximately 60%. Current best estimates of seat belt effectiveness The strongest way of estimating the effectiveness of seat belts can be found by searching for and combining previous estimates to create a larger sample size. MONITORING SEAT BELT USE (NOVEMBER ) BCTA surveyed its bus and motor coach members about adopting Motor Coach Canada’s (MCC) position and recommendations 1 to amend provincial seat belt legislation with respect to the requirement for drivers to monitor seat belt use on buses and motor coaches. The survey was sent to 33 member companies.

    The survey oversampled part-time belt users and hard-core nonusers to determine attitudes toward belt reminder and interlock systems as well as state seat belt use laws. 13 The survey found that 80 percent of full-time users and 78 percent of part-time users and nonusers reported that the current 4- to 8-second belt reminder system had no.   From my research I found that most US states do not require seatbelts to be used in a motor home with the exception to the front two seats. In Ontario on the other hand, for motor homes built after , or motorhomes with seatbelts in the "house" portion (which is behind the front two seats), seatbelts are required at all times and passengers are not allowed to move around.

    All provinces in Canada have primary enforcement seat belt laws, which allow a police officer to stop and ticket a driver if s/he observes a violation. Ontario was the first province to pass a law which required vehicle occupants to wear seat belts, a law that came into effect on . From the late s to , the primary source of obser- vational data was NHTSAâ s city survey (e.g., Goodell-Grivas, , ). From through , when nearly all States were conducting statewide observational surveys, national estimates of safety belt usage were obtained by aggregating the results of these statewide surveys.

RESULTS Level of Enforcement During the pilot programs, Elizabeth City police worked hours of overtime on seat Journal of Safety Research belt enforcement activities and issued seat belt and child restraint by:   Drivers refusing to provide a breath sample (N = ) in a roadside survey were compared with drivers agreeing to provide a sample (N = ) on a number of survey variables to determine whether the former were more likely to be impaired by alcohol than the icant differences in nonresponse rate as a function of time of interview, age, sex and seat belt use were Cited by: 3.

Table 2 presents the average age and gender distribution of the vehicle occupants considering their seat belt use based on the police crash reports. The average age of the males’ 1991 Ontario roadside seat belt survey results book (16 years old and older) was (SD = ) and for females was (SD = ).In addition, the average age of those who wore a seat belt properly (i.e., lap and shoulder) was Cited by: 3.

A study of roadside-observed seat belt use reported that increasing a fine from $5 to $ was associated with 11% increase in seat belt use, and that increasing a fine from $25 to $ was. A patient's typical pattern of seat-belt use in the months leading up to the MVC, as either a driver or a passenger, was consistent with seat-belt use at the time of the crash (p = ).

Proper seat-belt use (i.e., both lap and shoulder belts) was correlated with seat-belt compliance at the MVC (p = ).Cited by: The paper presents empirical results from a cross-sectional survey of car users in the Accra metropolis, regarding their seat belt usage.

Primary data was generated through direct road side. DISCUSSION The results of the first two cycles of Canadian- style publicity and enforcement programs to encourage seat belt use in North Carolina indi- cate that substantial increases in belt use can be accomplished and that the public supports such programs.

The incidence of seat belt syndrome can also be calculated as the number of children 14 years of age and younger with seat belt syndrome during divided by the total number of Canadian children 14 years of age and younger involved in a motor vehicle collision during the same time period (9,10).

More recently, analysis of data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System survey found that the rate of alcohol-impaired driving among persons who reported not always wearing a seat belt (1,) was three times higher than for those who reported always wearing a seat belt () (Jewett et.

RESULTS. The age and height for each student was recorded to determine if they should be using a booster seat both by law (i.e., if they were under cm tall or younger than 9 years old) and by best practice (i.e., if they were under cm tall) (see Table 1).Approximately 91% of children sampled at the intervention school should have been using a booster seat by law, while 98% of children.

Results. Drivers on the roads in our sample of 30 communities who were exposed to fewer than traffic stops population aged 18 and older had times the odds of being BAC positive, times the odds of driving with a BAC>, and times the odds of driving with a BAC> compared to those drivers on the roads in communities with more than 1, traffic stops The survey was conducted among a random sample of Ingham County, MI, residents who had purchased a hunting license between April and March.

Failure to heed the law can have tragic results, approximately 25% of all people killed in automobile collisions were not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident. Ontario was the first Canadian province to introduce seat belt laws back in At the time, only about 17% of Ontarians regularly wore a seat belt.

Now the number is 96%. Results of the roadside observation revealed that drivers recorded the higher percentage of total seatbelt wearing rate with % as compared to front passengers with %.

Mandatory seat belt legislation was subsequently introduced in New South Wales in Octoberand all other Australian states by January 3 Data from other Australian states following the introduction of mandatory seat belt laws were similar to Victoria’s.
