Buckling Up:
Technologies to Increase Seat Belt Use (Special Report 278)

Requested by Congress in P.L. 107-87, this new report examines the potential benefits of technologies that would encourage seat belt use in passenger vehicles -- such as belt "reminder systems" with warning chimes and flashing lights. It also considers consumer acceptance of these devices.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on October 14, 2003 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of The National Academies Press, as well as on the Transportation Research Board's publications site.
