Seat Belt Legislation Moves From State Assembly to State Senate Friday

After legislation requiring all passengers 16 and up to wear seat belts in the backseat of a car was passed by the Assembly, the State Senate gets it Friday.

State law already requires anyone in the front seat and anyone under 16 wear a seat belt.

It is estimated that car crashes are the leading cause of death among people between 1 and 54.

Statistics show seat belts saved 15,000 lives in 2017.
