This study was conducted by NHTSA in conjunction with Consumers Union. The study is part of a program to: (1) evaluate the effectiveness of the 1974 safety belt interlock system in increasing belt usage, and (2) determine owner/driver acceptance of the system. A survey of Consumer Reports readers who own 1974 model cars was conducted to determine detailed information about their reactions to the 1974 interlock and warning system, malfunction/failure of the system, comfort and convenience data, and personal data pertaining to the driver's sex, height, weight, age and education. /Author/
