Farouq Ado Umarand Newborn Courage Oghenerume

Abstract: A Survey was carried out to determine seat belt compliance of drivers and Front Seat Passengers (FSP) in Petroleum Training Institute Effurun. The Main Gate and Access Gate were the Sampling Locations. Physical observational count carried out for 40 days (1stMay – 23rdJune 2017) at two locations. Out of 3190 cars, 2305 were in compliance representing 72.26%. Out of 42 buses, only 8 were in compliance representing 19.05% and out of 13 trucks, only 2 were in compliance representing 15.38%. Drivers have higher compliance level than FSP and the compliance obtained at Access Gate (79.61%) was higher than that of Main Gate (67.58%). The entire study area has collective driver compliance of 71.34% (all vehicles) indicating 2315 drivers out of 3245 drivers were in compliance, while 930 drivers were not in compliance i.e., 28.66%. The front seat passenger (FSP) compliance indicated only 33.23% that is 332 FSP out of 999 FSP in all the Vehicles. Enforcement of the “No seat belt no Entry” by the security at both gates will go a long way in boosting compliance level. Likewise, frequent enlightenment of the staff for the need to remain belted until one reaches the designated parking lots.
