NHTSA requires observational surveys to be completed annually in each state to determine the level of seat belt use for each state. AIPC, under a grant from the Alaska Highway Safety Office, conducted seat belt observations for 2016. Seat belt use was recorded for drivers and front seat outboard passengers in cars, trucks, SUVs and vans. A total of 45,543 occupants were observed and 88.5% of those drivers and passengers were using a seat belt.
