Mobile phone and seat belt usage rates in London 2009

The fourth annual London Mobile Phone and Seat Belt survey was carried out in March 2009. The survey observes mobile phone use by drivers and restraint use by drivers and passengers of cars, taxis and vans. The London survey was carried out at 33 sites on weekdays, and 10 sites were revisited at the weekend. A total of 11,851 cars and taxis, and 2,410 vans were observed at the 33 sites. In general restraint use has increased year on year since the surveys began in 2006. In 2009, there was an overall increase in restraint use by all drivers and passengers, with the exception of front seat car passengers where restraint use fell from 86% (2008) to 81% (2009).(A)
