A Study of Seat Belts and Injuries 730965

This paper studies the effects of wearing seat belts in severe crash impacts in Victoria, Australia. In the study it was found that there were some injuries associated with wearing seat belts, but most of these were minor. There was an association between incorrect adjustment of seat belts and the occurrence of injury. There is a need for seat belt systems to be foolproof so that they can only be worn correctly.
