Evaluation of an Innovative and Sustainable Seat Belt Enforcement Program

This research project evaluates an innovative and sustainable seat belt enforcement program developed and implemented by a law enforcement agency. The program includes an innovative seat belt enforcement method that can be sustained independently by the agency, such as seat belt enforcement that is integrated into routine patrol on a daily or weekly basis. The objectives of this program evaluation are to determine if the innovative strategy can be implemented and sustained, if the program activity (i.e., enforcement and earned media activity) contributes to changes in observed seat belt use and restraint use in crashes, and if the program is cost-effective for the agency.
