Title: Indiana Traffic Safety Facts: Occupant Protection 2010
Author: Sapp, Dona

Abstract: CCJR reports that 44,229 passenger vehicle occupants were injured or killed in Indiana traffic collisions in 2010, 88 percent of whom were wearing proper safety restraints. Among those killed in Indiana, less than 48 percent were restrained. Vehicle occupants injured in Indiana collisions are counted as having been restrained when the investigating officer selects any one of the following passenger vehicle safety equipment categories on the Indiana Crash Report: (1) lap belt only; (2) harness; (3) airbag deployed and harness; (4) child restraint; or (5) lap and harness. By this standard, over 90 percent of passenger vehicle occupants involved in 2010 Indiana traffic collisions were wearing the proper safety restraint.
