This document provides statistical information on the benefits of occupant restraint systems in U.S. motor vehicle accidents. Data tables include: (1) estimated number of lives saved by restraint systems (seat belts, air bags, child restraints), 1975-2001; (2) cumulative estimated number of lives saved by safety belt use, 1975-2001; and (3) cumulative estimated number of lives saved by child restraints, 1975-2001. According to the data, an estimated 147,246 lives were saved by safety belts from 1975 through 2001. If all passenger vehicle occupants over age 4 had worn safety belts, an additional 9,167 lives could have been saved in 2001. Similar benefits are evident from use of air bags and child restraints.
