Results of Transport Canada's September 2004 Survey of Seat Belt Use in Rural Areas of the Country

The National Occupant Restraint Program (NORP 2010) is an important element of Road Safety Vision 2010 — an ambitious partnership approved by the federal, provincial and territorial ministers responsible for transportation and highway safety to make Canada’s roads the safest in the world. The objective of the National Occupant Restraint Program is to achieve a minimum 95% national seat belt usage and the proper use of child restraints by all motor vehicle occupants. Transport Canada’s contribution to this program of promoting seat belt usage is to conduct observational surveys. In September 2004, Transport Canada conducted an observational survey of seat belt use in rural communities across Canada. This paper presents the results of the survey. Seat belt usage was reported by province, light-duty vehicle type, driver gender and vehicle type, and driver age.
