Why do we still see cars with full cushions in the back? The answer is simple, especially when you consider the hazards of seat belt use today. Like many other safety innovations that were once revolutionary in their time, the seat belt has changed little since the early 20th century. This is a pity, because, as recognized by a top industrial safety committee, seat belts save lives. Fatalities There are an estimated 500,000 to 600,000 fatalities each year in the United States from motor vehicle crashes and this does not include many thousands who survive with serious and permanent injuries. In 1960 there were a little over 100,000 seat belt fatalities. However, in the last 30 years that number has been reduced to less than 50,000. Even as recently as 2006, there were only 10,000 seat belt fatalities in the United States. Of the deaths, approximately 2,000 were among children. In addition, another 400,000 people were hospitalized due to injuries sustained in crashes. Fatalities from motor vehicle crashes are the second leading cause of death among children aged 1 to 14 years. Safety belts have been shown to reduce fatalities by an average of 20%. That’s one of the reasons why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires all workers to wear them. In addition, federal law requires all drivers to wear them. Where are the “Other” Deaths? While fatalities are what most people think of when they hear about seat belts, they are not the only casualties. Between 600,000 and 1 million people are injured each year in motor vehicle crashes. In addition, many other people are injured while riding in or driving motor vehicles and wearing a seat belt or a booster seat. In the event of a crash, seat belts can have an impact on other people. The belt can throw the occupant off balance and the shoulder belt can pull the occupant forward. Opinion A survey was conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) to try to quantify what injuries and deaths might be averted if every motor vehicle driver was wearing a seat belt. Over 80% of the deaths and injuries prevented could have been avoided if people were buckled up.
