All passengers, no matter of age or where they are seated in a vehicle, must now be restrained. Previously, adults in the back seat did not have to wear a seat belt by law.

State Police, Tioga Sheriff’s Deputies and Waverly Police held a safety checkpoint in the Village on November 17 and wrote 22 tickets for seat belt violations.  The checkpoint was set up on Chemung Street in Waverly.
