Rear Seat Belt Use: Little Change in Four Years, Much More to Do
This report makes specific recommendations on how states and other stakeholders can and should save lives by increasing rear seat belt use by adults:
- States should pass and enforce strong laws and publicize the benefits of belt use in all seating situations;
- Fir-hire vehicle services should actively promote belt use to their passengers;
- Vehicle manufacturers should install rear seat belt use reminders; and
- NHTSA should develop programs and finalize federal rulemaking to require rear belt reminders.
