CONGRESSIONAL REQUEST FOR SEAT BELT USE TECHNOLOGY STUDY

House Report 107-108 to accompany Appropriations for the Department of Transportation and Related Agencies for Fiscal Year 2002, June 22, 2001:

Newly developed vehicle technologies may present opportunities for increasing seat belt use, without being overly intrusive. The Committee directs NHTSA to contract with the Transportation Research Board of the National Academy of Sciences to conduct a study on the benefits and acceptability of these technologies, as well as any legislative or regulatory actions that may be necessary to enable installation of devices to encourage seat belt use in passenger vehicles.
