Smaller, but substantial increases in belt use were observed in states that replaced secondary with primary laws (median increase of 14 percentage points). Baseline belt use rates in these states ranged from 47 to 73%. Primary safety belt laws can further increase seat belt use even in states with relatively high baseline levels of belt use.

        Motor vehicle death rates rise rapidly during the teen years, and they remain very high into early adulthood. The rate for teens, however, has followed a downward trend for most of the past decade, and in was the lowest it has been in the past 30 years, at 11 deaths per , teens. While seatbelt use averages 88% nationally, there are still groups less likely to wear seat belts: teens, commercial drivers, males in rural areas, pick-up truck drivers, and people who have been drinking.

The relatively high rate of baseline seat belt use in this study could be accounted for by the fact that the Please Buckle Up—I Care procedure had been implemented and evaluated 6 months earlier (Clayton, Helms, & Simpson, ). The initial baseline rate of seat belt use during the earlier study was approximately 50%.

Seat belt use varies substantially across the 50 States. Inobserved seat belt use exceeded some features common to all 10 States that appear to have helped them achieve high seat belt use.
