BREAKING: Mumbai police makes seatbelts mandatory for all vehicle occupants from November

The Mumbai Police Department announced on Friday that safety belts would be mandatory for drivers and co-passengers beginning November 1, 2022.

The sleuths in a notification stated that anyone who drives a motor vehicle without wearing a safety belt or transports passengers who are not wearing seat belts will be prosecuted.

The notification also stated that all motor vehicles that do not have seat belts must install seat belts for all commuters. The deadline for everyone to comply has been set for November 1, 2022.

"All motor vehicle drivers and all commuters in vehicles, whoever travels on the road of Mumbai City are hereby informed that, it will be mandatory for drivers and all passengers to wear seat belts while traveling from 01/11/2022. Otherwise, action will be taken under section 194(B)(1) of the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act 2019," read the notification.

Days after a car accident killed former Tata group chairman Cyrus Mistry, Union Minister for Road Transport & Highways Nitin Gadkari declared that the central government would now make safety harnesses mandatory for all car passengers. He stated that a penalty has already been decided for defaulters, whether they are in the front or back seat.
