Summary
"This document summarizes the strategies that supported or opposed new legislative provisions and the barriers encountered in modifying safety belt laws prior to December 1997. This study developed legislative analyses of six jurisdictions that upgraded their secondary safety belt laws to primary standard ones: California, Louisiana, Georgia, District of Columbia, Maryland and Oklahoma. In-depth interviews were conducted to elicit the legislative histories of the political process and to identify the roles of key players, including insights from legislators, lobbyists, coalition leaders, law enforcement officials, and media representatives. No single, generalizable strategy emerged, yet the jurisdictions faced similar barriers. Two key opposition arguments regarded the potential for minority harassment and the infringement on individuals' rights. Key legislative participants included: the Governor, the legislation sponsors, committee chairs and a variety of coalition members. NHTSA played a support role in bringing together coalitions and providing statistics and data. Conclusions include the importance of clarifying the overall legislative objective, identifying barriers not directly related to overt opposition, implementing a variety of useful legislative techniques, identifying opportunities for organizations/ individuals to play effective roles, and capitalizing on dramatic incidents which affect political will. Report includes program and research recommendations."--Technical report documentation page
