CAR SEAT BELTS. THE OPINIONS AND ATTITUDES OF DRIVERS. VOL 1. TEXT I, AND VOL 2: APPENDICES

Gives the results of the analysis of a multi-item questionnaire completed by 250 drivers. The overall attitude to seat belts is complex and diverse. However, the results indicate a number of areas wherein the design of seat belts may be improved. They also indicate that the present method of encouraging belt use in campaign material may be improved by appealing to the most salient characteristic of intermittent belt users; their amenability to belt use under particular personal and environmental conditions. This paper was published as TRC report no t76-2266, July 1975, 90 pp. The appendix includes tables giving: classificatory variables and belt usage indices; reasons for wearing and not wearing seat belts, and belt usage indices. /TRRL/
