The Act requires occupants of the front seat of a passenger vehicle to wear seat belts. Exceptions are provided for occupants of certain vehicles, such as vehicles used for delivery purposes. Failure to wear a seat belt is not permitted as evidence in civil negligence actions, nor may the failure serve as a basis for cancelling or increasing insurance rates. The Act provides for the issuance of a warning in all instances and a fine in limited circumstances.
