ATTITUDES OF CANADIANS TOWARDS LEGISLATION REQUIRING MANDATORY USE OF SEAT BELTS
A telephone survey was carried out in the fall of 1975 to determine the extent of acceptance of legislation which would make the wearing of seat belts compulsory. A majority of those surveyed reported that, given the opportunity, they would vote for the introduction of such a law. Loss of freedom of choice and fear that seat belts are dangerous were the first and second most frequently cited of four possible reasons for objecting to a seat belt law, (other reasons cited were based on discomfort and nuisance of belts). Tables and statistical analysis are included.
