The use of seat belts in Sweden 2014 (English)
Abstract [sv]

VTI har observerat bilbältesanvändningen i ett antal syd- och mellansvenska städer sedan 1983. Bilbältesanvändningen för passagerare i både fram- och baksäte ökade fram till 2012, därefter har ökningen upphört. Bland yrkesförare har bältesanvändningen däremot ökat kontinuerligt. Observationerna år 2014 gjordes under ett tiotal dagar i augusti–september. Sammanlagt observerades drygt 57 200 personbilar, nästan 1 300 taxibilar samt cirka 9 700 övriga bilar, exempelvis lastbilar. Bilbältesanvändningen i framsätet av personbil ligger på 96-97 procent för 2014, vilket är en liten minskning jämfört med året innan. När VTI:s mätserie började 1983 var bältesanvändningen bland vuxna i baksätet endast 10 procent. Enligt de senaste observationerna är cirka 81 procent av alla vuxna baksätespassagerare bältade, vilket är tre procentenheter lägre än nivån år 2013.

Abstract [en]

VTI has observed seat belt use in a number of towns in southern Sweden since 1983. The observations in 2014 were made over a total of ten days in August–September 2014. In total, approximately 57,200 passenger cars, 1,300 taxi cars and 9,700 other vehicles, e.g. trucks were observed. During the whole survey period, 1983–2014, seat belt use among drivers and front seat passengers has been at a considerably higher and more uniform level than among back seat passengers. At the beginning of the surveys, 84–86 per cent of drivers and front seat passengers already wore a seat belt. Today, the levels are 96–97 per cent, a slight decline from the previous year. When VTI commenced the surveys in 1983, seat belt use by adult back seat passengers was at a modest 10 per cent. When the law requiring all adult occupants to wear seat belts in passenger cars came into force on 1 July 1986, the figure quickly increased to 60 per cent. According to the latest observations, approximately 81 per cent of all adult back seat passengers wear a seat belt, which is lower than the level 2013 (84 per cent). In the back seat, children have always had a much higher belt use than the adults, which also applies to 2014, when slightly more than 95 per cent of children in the back seat were belted. This is a slight decline compared to last year.
