A 2004 AAA survey indicates 61% of the Massachusetts public supports the enactment of a primary seat belt law. If Massachusetts adopted a primary seat belt law, it is anticipated that we would observe an 11-14% increase in compliance with our law in the first year alone; at this 75% rate of belt usage we would prevent 2,052 injuries, 27 deaths and the expenditure of $221.1 million.
