Seat Belt Law Goes Into Effect on November 1 – Every Passenger Must Wear One

Seat Belt Law Goes Into Effect on November 1 – Fines to Follow

Today, the NYC Department of Transportation posted a reminder of how the new Seat Belt will go into effect beginning Sunday, November 1, 2020.

The law (S.4336/A.6163) was signed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on August 11. It requires all passengers in motor vehicles, over the age of 16, to wear a seat belt regardless of where they sit within the vehicle.

Previously, only those sitting in the front seats (over the age of 16) were required to wear one.

Below is the tweet posted by the DOT letting us know of the fines which may issued for failure to obey related laws – ranging from $50 to $100.

Yesterday, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that the “Dusk and Darkness” Pedestrian Safety Campaign would be back again. Therein, within the related press release, he too reminded New Yorkers of the upcoming law and the need for safety.
