The use of seat belts in Sweden 2015 (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta notat redovisar resultatet av VTI:s årliga mätning av bilbältesanvändning som genomförts i ett antal syd- och mellansvenska städer sedan 1983. Redan i mätseriens början använde 84–86 procent av förare och framsätespassagerare bälte. År 2015 är nivåerna på 97–98 procent, en liten uppgång jämfört med föregående år. 1983 var bältesanvändningen bland vuxna i baksätet endast 10 procent.

Enligt de senaste observationerna är 89 procent av alla vuxna baksätespassagerare bältade, vilket är den hittills högsta noteringen och en betydligt högre nivå än 2014. I baksätet har barnen alltid haft en betydligt högre bältesanvändning än de vuxna, vilket gäller även 2015 då 97 procent av barnen i baksätet var bältade. Detta är en uppgång jämfört med 2014, och bältesnyttjandet bland barn i baksätet är i paritet med den bland förare och passagerare i framsätet.

En delstudie bland personbilsförarna visar att kvinnor genomgående har högre bältesanvändning än män. Dessutom gäller att bältesanvändningen ökar med ökad ålder, särskilt bland manliga personbilsförare. De yngsta (18–25 år) manliga personbilsförarna har den lägsta bältesanvändningen.

Abstract [en]

VTI has observed seat belt use in a number of towns in Southern Sweden since 1983. 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 97–98 per cent, a slight increase 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.

According to the latest observations, approximately 89 per cent of all adult back seat passengers wear a seat belt, which is so far the highest rate and significantly higher than the level 2014. In the back seat, children have always had a much higher belt use than the adults, which also applies to 2015, when 97 per cent of children in the back seat were belted. This is an increase compared with 2014 and seat belt use among children in the back seat is on par with the car occupant in the front seat. A sub-study among drivers of passenger cars shows that women consistently have higher seat belt use than men. In addition, seat belt usage increases with age, especially among male drivers.
