Safety Belt Use Impacts Hospitalization Outcomes

Approximately every two years the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration conducts a national telephone survey to monitor the public's attitudes, knowledge, and self-reported behavior regarding safety belts, child safety seats, air bags, crash injury experience, and emergency medical services (EMS). The 2003 survey consisted of two questionnaires, each administered to a randomly selected sample of about 6,000 persons age 16 or older. This Traffic Tech briefly summarizes some of the findings on crash injury experience and EMS. Findings are also reported concerning stopping at a crash scene and wireless phones.
