Revised NYS Seat Belt Law Could Add Restrictions to Back Seat Riders

New Yorkers might soon have to wear a seat belt, regardless of how old they are or where they're sitting.

Gov. Cuomo is including language in his budget amendments that would expand the seat belt requirement for adults who sit in the back seat of a car or truck.

Passengers 16 years of age or younger are already required to be buckled up or secured in a child restraint system.

The proposal was part of the budget last year, but was dropped during negotiations.
