Pennsylvania Laws Regarding Passengers in Pickup Trucks


The laws in the State of Pennsylvania regarding passengers in the bed of pickups can be found at http://www.iihs.org/laws/state_laws/cargo_laws.html.


Basically the law provides that the beds of pickups are only to be used for cargo. Seat belts are required in the State of Pennsylvania for any and all passengers. Passengers sitting in pickup beds do not have the ability to use seat belts. The Pennsylvania law state “Persons 18 and older if the vehicle is traveling less than 35 mph; inapplicable to occupants 17 and younger if the cargo area is enclosed; parades, hunting, and farm operations.” The above is considered a gap in coverage of the law.
