Abstract:
Markings or observable anomalies on seat belt webbing and hardware can be classified into two categories: (1) marks caused by collision forces, or “loading marks”; and (2) marks that are created by non-accident situations, or “noncollision marks”. In a previous work, a survey of the driver's seat belt of 307 vehicles that had never experienced a collision was conducted, and several examples of marks created by normal, everyday usage, or “normal usage marks” were presented. It was found that some normal usage marks were visually similar to loading marks. This paper presents several examples comparing loading marks to visually similar normal usage marks and discusses the important similarities and differences.
