Report finds adults don't always use seat belt in back seat

Women are reportedly more likely than men to use a seat belt when riding in the back. However, IIHS says those not wearing a seat belt are putting themselves at risk regardless of where they are sitting during a vehicle crash.

"When we asked people why they were less likely to buckle up, a quarter of the respondents told us that it's safer in the back seat, so they don't need to buckle up", said Jessica Jermakian, an IIHS senior research engineer.

Almost two-thirds of part-time belt users and nonusers said audible rear-seat belt reminders would make them more likely to buckle up.

IIHS research revealed that 91 percent of adults say they wear seat belts in the front of vehicle, while only 72 percent say they wear them in the back.

The IIHS reported that almost 40 percent of those surveyed said they don't always buckle up in the back seat because there's no law requiring it.

The group least likely to report always buckling up in the back were those 35 to 54 years old.

Dave Chappelle: Trump is "a bad DJ at a good party"
The comedian gave his thoughts on the commander in chief during an appearance on Stephen Colbert's Late Show on Wednesday night. He said, " I think he will make more reforms and better voting; we will work it out".

It hasn't been clear why fewer people buckle up in the rear seat because most research has focused on attitudes of people in front who don't wear their seat belts.

Uber driver Dustin Goodsell said most people often don't buckle up on short trips.

Most people who don't wear seatbelts do so because they think rear seats are safer. Strangely enough, only 60 percent of that group said they would buckle up if there was such a law in their state. These include changes to front seat belts that reduce chest injuries, the addition of seat belt reminder chimes and structural improvements to better protect passengers in a frontal crash.

In the IIHS survey, four of 10 surveyed said they sometimes don't buckle up in the rear seat because there is no law requiring it, But If there were such a law, six of 10 said they would.

Meanwhile, the University of Texas study also found an increase in fatal crashes in two states that fully legalized pot. The next most popular reason was that using a belt isn't a habit or they forget about it or simply never or rarely use it. Kentucky law is written so that drivers can be pulled over if an officer notices that someone in the vehicle is not wearing a seat belt.
