With 5% a, 80% power of the test and SPSS 10:00 software, obtained significant internal factors shape the perception of safety risks are the driving experience (p value = 0.000) and confidence (p value = 0.008), whereas a significant external factor is the influence of friends (p value =0.000). Respondents who have bad perceptions of the driving safety risk have a chance of 72 times [OR 72.46 (15.26; 344.02)] for not using safety belts compared to respondents who have a good perception of driving safety risk.
