2011 CDOT Pre-Mobilization Seat Belt Survey

In May 2011, the Institute of Transportation Management of Colorado State University conducted a pre-mobilization seat belt usage assessment of drivers and outboard front seat passengers of non-commercial vehicles in the State of Colorado. The study was sponsored by the Colorado Department of Transportation, Office of Transportation Safety and involved observations at 71 sites in nine counties across the State of Colorado. The survey was conducted from May 1 through May 7, 2011, as a “pre-enforcement wave” study, and included drivers and front seat outboard passengers within cars, vans, sport utility vehicles (SUVs), and light trucks normally used for personal transportation. Commercial vehicles were excluded from this survey.
