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.
