Samenvatting ESRA (E-Survey of Road users’ Attitudes) is a joint initiative of road safety institutes, research centres, public services, and private sponsors from all over the world. The aim is to collect and analyse comparable data on road safety performance, in particular road safety culture and behaviour of road users. The ESRA data are used as a basis for a large set of road safety indicators. These provide scientific evidence for policy making at national and international levels. The present report is based on the second edition of this global survey, which was conducted in 2018. In total this survey collected data from more than 35.000 road users across 32 countries. An overview of the ESRA initiative and the project-results are available on: www.esranet.eu. This thematic ESRA2 report focusses on two specific topics: the attitudes and opinions of road users on wearing a seat belt while driving a car or as a car passenger and on the use of child restraint systems (CRS). This report analyses the following aspects: the acceptability of unsafe traffic behaviour related to the use of seat belts and CRS; self-declared (unsafe) traffic behaviours; attitudes towards unsafe traffic behaviours; support for road safety policy measures; as well as the reported police checks and perceived likelihood of getting caught for seat belt offences. The analyses provide an international comparison of 32 participating countries in four regions; furthermore, the effect of age and gender on seat belt and CRS use is examined. (Author/publisher)
