Buckle up in the back seat now...it's a law now.

According to a cbs6albany.com news report, the New York Assembly has passed legislation that requires every person 16 -years old and older to wear a seat belt while riding in the back seat of a car...

“The Assembly Majority is committed to making sure our roads are safe for everyone,” Speaker Heastie said. “When you refuse to wear a seat belt, you are not just taking your own life into your hands, you put at-risk the lives of those in the car with you. Requiring everyone, regardless of where they are sitting, to buckle up will save lives.”
