When is it okay not to buckle up?

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration VS. See full size image

Nationwide campaigns like “Click-It or Ticket” have lead many states to pass strict laws like the ones in New Jersey below.

  • Applies to all passenger vehicles including vans, pickup trucks and SUV’s, that are required to be equipped with seat belts.
  • Applies to all passengers, who are at least 8 years of age but less than 18 years of age, and each driver and front seat passenger of a passenger automobile, operated on a street or highway. All of these occupants are required to wear a properly adjusted and fastened seat belt system.
  • On January 18, 2010, legislation was signed into law requiring all occupants to buckle up, regardless of their seating position in a vehicle. A secondary offense, the new law allows police to issue summonses to unbuckled back seat occupants, 18 years of age and older, when the vehicle they are riding in is stopped for another violation. The law is effective immediately.
  • Makes the driver responsible for proper seat belt use by all occupants who are under the age of 18.

Guess that doesn’t apply here…
