UNDERSTANDING AND ACCEPTANCE OF THE NORTH CAROLINA SAFETY BELT USE LAW

A study is described which used the results of a telephone interview to assess current public understanding and acceptance of the North Carolina seat belt Law as well as identify potential improvements that might increase the belt use of part-time wearers and maintain the belt use rates already achieved. An attempt was also made to refine and implement a prototype questionnaire that could be used by various states to obtain information to better plan their occupant protection program. The development of the survey and the study method is described. The results of the study are presented and discussed.
