- Seat Belt Use and Seat Belt Wearing Behavior Among Front and Rear Seat Passengers in the United States3/7/2019 9:28:00 AMA new CDC study explores self-reported seat belt use and belief about seat belt use among adults. The study found that seat belt use and the belief of its importance was higher for front seat passengers compared with back seat passengers. In addition, the study finds that, for both the front and rear seating positions, belief about the importance of seat belt use is the strongest predictor of wearing a seat belt. The findings suggest that efforts to increase seat belt use among high-risk populations, such as those who live in states with secondary or no seat belt laws and those who ride in rear seats (which include people who utilize taxis or ride-hailing vehicles) could benefit from interventions designed to strengthen beliefs related to the benefits of seat belt use.
