Variation in Drivers' Seat Belt Use By Indicators of Community-Level Vulnerability

Examining crash reports with linked community-level indicators may optimize efforts aimed at improving traffic safety behaviors like seat belt use. In a sample of non-responsible crash-involved drivers in NJ, not wearing a seat belt was 121% more prevalent in communities with the largest percentage of the population living with three or more indicators of vulnerability than those in the least vulnerable communities.
