Abstract [sv]

The VTI has been making observations of seat belt usage in an uninterrupted

series since 1983.

Apart from a few exceptions, usage has increased every year. The most

prominent increase has

been in seat belt usage of rear seat passengers. Since 1983, seat belt usage

in the front seat has

remained on a high and consistent level, 90-92 % in 2001 compared with about

85 % in 1983.

When the series of measurements began, only 10 % of all adults in the rear

seat used a belt; now

the level is 70 %. Today, nearly 90 % of all children in the rear seat use a

belt. Women are

generally more likely to use a belt than men, and older people more than


Since 1 October 1999, the law on using a seat belt has also applied to

drivers of taxis and heavy

vehicles. In the study carried out during 2001, about 60 % of all taxi

drivers used a seat belt, which

was the same as the previous year. Among drivers of heavy vehicles without

and with a trailer,

23 % and 25 % respectively used a seat belt in 2001, which was approximately

the same level as in

the previous year.
