Seat Belt Law here in Massachusetts

 Here in Massachusetts, any person over the age of 12 riding in a private vehicle must wear a seatbelt, regardless of whether you are a driver or passenger.  This law, c. 90, s. 13A, does not apply to persons riding in non-private vehicles, i.e., buses or cabs, nor does it apply in certain other limited circumstances.  However, the intent of the law is clear- the use of seat belts can save lives.  The link below vividly [and sadly] demonstrates the rationale behind this law.
