Massachusetts Annual Safety Belt Usage Goals vs. Actual Usage Rates

Figures by Percentage

Figures per Federal Fiscal Year (October 1 – September 30)


Primary vs secondary safety belt state laws

Primary vs. Secondary Safety Belt State Laws

  • MGL, Chapter 90, §13A requires that all drivers and passengers in a motor vehicle wear a safety belt.

  • Massachusetts is a secondary enforcement law state. Secondary enforcement laws allow police to ticket a motorist for not wearing a safety belt only if they witness another traffic offense first.

  • Despite significant efforts during federal fiscal year (FFY) 2010 to educate the legislature on the health and financial benefits of a primary seat belt law, the Massachusetts Legislature did not enact such legislation

  • Nationally, states with primary safety belt laws have 88% driver safety belt usage, while those with secondary enforcement have only 75%.

Safety Belts Save Lives

  • When used correctly, a safety belt system can reduce your chances of serious or fatal injury by up to 50%

  • The proper use position for an adult driver or passenger calls for the lap belt to sit low on the hips and the shoulder strap to fall across the chest

  • Increased safety belt use correlates with decreased injury rates in communities

  • Preliminary data for 2009 show the number of unrestrained passenger vehicle occupant fatalities in Massachusetts has declined by 13% from an average of 152 fatalities to an average of 135 fatalities from 2005-2009. However, one fatality is still too many.
