BILL NUMBER: S1282

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to requiring
all back seat motor vehicle passengers over the age of seven to be
restrained by a safety belt


PURPOSE :
To require all back seat motor vehicle passengers over the age of
seven to wear a seat belt.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Sections one and two of the bill make all passengers, other than those
children who are required by law to be restrained by a child
protective seat under standards set forth in 49 C.F.R. 571.213, to
wear a safety belt.

Section three of the bill is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION :
Safety belts have been proven to save lives and reduce personal
injuries associated with automobile accidents. However, under current
law, only persons under the age of sixteen are required to wear safety
belts while in the back seat of a motor vehicle. This bill would
require that all passengers in the back seat of a motor vehicle use
safety belts. If enacted, this bill would save lives and reduce
personal injuries associated with automobile accidents.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
New legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect on the first of September next succeeding
the date on which it shall have become a law.
