Observations of seat belt usage and interviews of seat belt non-wearers were conducted in fourteen rural towns in New South Wales, Victoria and the Northern Territory. In general, the study concludes that seat belt wearing rates have increased significantly in recent years. In addition, a number of characteristics of seat belt non-wearers have been drawn from the interview data with regard to socio-economic characteristics, type and length of trip, attitudes to seat belt laws and random breath testing.
