It is one thing for an engineer to design the safest vehicle and equip it with the most effective restraint system. It is quite another to have the user of this fine equipment use it to lengthen his own life. This paper explains the process one segment of a large government agency has successfully used to get approximately 88% use of the restraint system on the job and a slightly lower percentage of use by employee's families in the family car. Program emphasis has been on the 3-point lap/shoulder belt for maximum head protection.
