Malaysia Government Introduces S$100 Fine For Rear Passengers Who Do Not Wear Seatbelts

Everyone knows that it’s important to buckle up when you’re in a car. However, most of us will only do so when we’re sitting at the front seat.

If you’re planning a road trip soon to Malaysia, remember to put on your seatbelts even when you’re in the backseat. Failing to do so might get you a S$100 fine.

S$100 fine for those who don’t wear seatbelts at the back

As the new year begins, Malaysia is making child seats and rear seatbelts mandatory. Needless to say, the same goes for putting on the seatbelts.

Those who fail to comply with the law face an S$100 (RM 300) fine. The new law only applies to passengers aged 17 and above.

Action will be taken against rear passengers who have access to seatbelts but choose not to buckle up.

Law originally introduced in 2009

Putting on seatbelts when sitting in the rear was made mandatory in 2009. However, many took it lightly, which hindered the enforcement of the law.

The government then gave a grace period of 3 years, according to Beetify.

Wear seatbelts for your own safety

Buckling up when you’re sitting at the back might seem like an unnecessary interruption to your comfort.

Yet, it’s better to be safe than sorry. No one wants to be injured, especially when you’re on a holiday. Wherever you are, it’s best to buckle up and drive safely.

Not such a headache if your car has a built in seat that is also a booster seat when you rack it
