SEAT BELTS: 1949-1956
The study assesses the impact of the consumer misconceptions, the lack of a seat belt standard, corporate attitudes towards safety, and the role of safety advocates. In addition, the study assesses the validity of the oft-stated hypothesis "safety doesn't sell" by examining the results of Ford's 1956 safety car campaign.
