RESTRAINT USE BY CAR OCCUPANTS: GREAT BRITAIN, 1982-91

This review of restraint use by car occupants in Great Britain begins with a look at the introduction of seat belt regulations, from the compulsory fitting of seat belts in front seats of new cars in 1965 to July 1991 when all rear seat passengers in cars were required to wear seat belts or alternative restraint systems. The discussion then turns to measuring seat belt wearing rates, followed by detailed discussions of front seat wearing rates and rear seat wearing rates, and their variations by age and sex. Finally, the effect of seat belt regulations on casualty totals is examined.
