To establish whether the seat belt wearing rate is influenced by seat belt reminder systems
Roadside observations of vehicle wearing rates
Observations of seat belt wearing rates were made of several preselected car models in seven European cities.
The seat belt wearing rate was 97.5% in cars fitted with SBR that met EuroNCAP standards.
The seat belt wearing rate was 93.2% in cars with a mild SBR.
The seat belt wearing rate was 85.5% in cars without SBR.
