Seat belts have been required on passenger cars since 1968. New Jersey requires wearing seat belts in cars and light trucks. There is no question that seat belts play an important role in keeping occupants safe in these vehicles. New Jersey law states that all buses are to be equipped with seatbelts and the driver is to remind the students to wear them. Each time you pull away from a school or stop please say, “Please buckle up.”

Seat belts are to be worn by the driver at all times the bus is in motion.
