VTI has observed seatbelt usein a number of towns in Central Sweden since 1983. The observations in 2012 were made over a total of ten days in August–September 2012, averaging at one day at the studied sites. In total, approximately 59,300 passenger cars, 1,200 taxi cars and 8,100 other vehicles were observed.During the whole survey period, 1983–2012, seat belt use by drivers and front seat passengers has been at a considerably higher and more uniform level than back seat passengers. 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 almost 98 per cent.
