RESTRAINT USE AMONG FATALLY INJURED PASSENGER VEHICLE OCCUPANTS BY SEX

This Crash Stats looks at the differences in restraint use among fatally injured passenger vehicle occupants based on sex. Out of the 31,904 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2003, 20,654 (65%) were males, 11,246 (35%) were females, and the rest were unknown. A chart and a table are presented that show 5-yr trend data of passenger vehicle occupant fatalities by sex and restraint use. Among the 20,654 fatally injured male passenger vehicle occupants 12,751 (62%) were not restrained and of the 11,246 female passenger vehicle occupants 5,279 (47%) were not restrained. The data clearly show that restraint use in fatal crashes among males in much lower than among females.
