Title FMCSA Proposes Seat Belt Law for Truck Passengers
Date Posted 12/17/2015
Description The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is proposing to require passengers in property-carrying commercial motor vehicles to use seat belts on public roads. In the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that will be published in the Federal Register December 10, FMCSA said the rule "would hold motor carriers and drivers responsible" for making sure passengers use seat belts. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration requires passenger seat belts to be installed in CMVs, but there is no federal law requiring passengers to wear them.
