Among the reasons cited for recent declines in alcohol-related traffic fatalities is the enactment of seat belt use laws by most states.
It is suspected that drinking drivers are less likely to comply with such laws, although evidence on the relationship between belt use and drinking by drivers is sparse and conflicting.
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship of drinking to driver seat belt use.
Observational, self-report, and chemical breath test data were collected on nighttime drivers in 16 Minnesota communities during September, 1990.
