The nationwide seat belt use rate was 90.4% in 2021. What is it going to take to get that remaining 9.6% of motor vehicle occupants to buckle up, especially as new NHTSA data indicate that unrestrained vehicle occupant fatalities increased 3% last year and remain above pre-pandemic levels? Innovative programs are needed to address this pervasive issue and make sure everyone is properly restrained in a seat belt or child safety seat. In the second pre-GHSA 2022 Annual Meeting webinar, sponsored by the Auto Glass Safety Council, after hearing about the role windshields play in occupant protection, join experts from public health, community organizations, the private sector and law enforcement to learn what approaches they’re taking to improve the safety of vehicle occupants.
