The American highway code requires all passengers in an RV (or car) to have their seat belts fastened while the vehicle is driving.
A violation will earn you a fine of US$80 to US$100.
It is also important to know that the number of passengers inside a vehicle must not exceed the number of seat belts.
It is therefore prohibited by law to allow children to sleep in a bed while driving, by day or by night, as they will not be wearing seat belts.
It is also a question of common sense. Do you really want to run the risk? An accident can happen at any time!
Wearing a seat belt is the best protection for all vehicle occupants .
