Signed into law by Governor Cuomo on August 11th, New York’s seatbelt law requires all motor vehicle passengers, regardless of age, to wear a seatbelt. This includes the backseat. Previously, only passengers 16 and under were required to wear a seatbelt in the backseat. The law will take effect on Monday, November 1st. This new seatbelt law will save lives and prevent serious injuries on New York’s roadways.
So remember, when you’re on your way to an Open House, a Broker’s Open, going to a closing or wherever you’re headed – front or back, buckle up. It’s the law!!
