Levinoss Coulda sworn in Texas you can ride in the bed as long as you are sitting down and not on the top or on the wheel wells.

crazyredneck back on topic, in kansas you are allowed to ride in truck beds as long as you are not on a highway, state or US.


rear seat belts are not a law yet, but you cannot drive in the left lane of a highway for extended amounts of time now,

daanbc We are all property to them. We are the Cash Cows. Funny thing is we are the one's they need to survive. It's the middle class that helps the poor. It's the middle class that pay's the taxe's=thier salary, and it's the middle class that the wealthiest need.

I thought the same thing. I guess I keep thinking about people as people. Silly me. I have to be constantly reminded that legislators now seem to consider people to be just another type of property.

JDsDream The insurance company lobbyists pushed for the repeal of the helmet laws. Think about it. If your in an accident on your bike, the helmet may save you, costing the insurance company $100,000s in medical payments. If you are killed which is more likely if not wearing a helmet. One time life payout and their done

Mike Phifer The really weird thing about it all is that while PA got stricter about seatbelts, they completely reversed the helmet law for motorcycles. So the state wants to make sure that you have a seatbelt on, but if you want to ride your bike without a helmet that's your call. Doesn't make any sense if the motivation is safety; doesn't make sense if the motivation is revenue from tickets. I guess it only makes sense if you are a legislator. Good thing it makes sense to them.

BLACKTOOTHGRIN That's funny.
They must be getting pretty damn strict back east now.
Kinda sucks.
I used to live in upstate as well.
We always had people in the back of our pick-ups and NEVER had a problem with the Cops.

Yeah, that coupled with their newly granted ability to pull people over specifically for not wearing their seatbelts should rake us some serious cash.

The law went into effect about 2002. Manley because their was an incident were a guy had his dog in the bed, at a light the dog jumped out and attacked a pedestrian walking accross the street. The second was a crash in your neck of the woods. The truck hit a pole, three people were flown out of the bed. I believe they all servived, but were mangled up pretty bad.

While it isn't illegal, I wouldn't want someone riding in my jeep without a seatbelt.

In most states, there isn't a backseat seatbelt requirement, unless they are children under a certain age or size.

Also look at it this way:
Lots of people have trucks.
People are allowed to ride in the bed of the trucks without penalty.
Most of the time, they are facing the rear.
And as stated above, look at the Subaru Brat.

I say, don't sweat it.

kg4kpg Maybe you can find some Brat seats. I remember those truck/cars. Seen a couple lifted, looks sharp. A guy who worked for my dad had one and when you pushed a button on the console it rose 2 inches. All wheel drive.

Loic we i was based in Africa (back in 89...)
we had an old toyota landcruiser 3 speed, the rear seat were actually 2 bench side way. it was cool. you could lift up the seat against thd back rest to have more cargo room. that truck could go everywhere.

You are correct!

The Baja is the "new brat" They made for only 3-4 years. It was actually between an 05 Baja Turbo or my TJ that i picked up. Needless to say, I think i made the right choice!
07-10-2009 08:14 AM
lilmatty5dimes There is also a mini van that the seats would turn 360 degrees. We had a pontiac station wagon that had a rear seat. The coolest thing ever when you're a kid. It's true everyone fought for that seat.
07-10-2009 07:39 AM
dylan My dad's old land Cruiser had sideways facing seats in the back, man that thing was a beat POS, but it was fun when it did run

SpeedJunkie The seat belts are the only thing that need to be addressed.


And, yes there was a subaru and few other of the early car/truck crossovers that did that in the 80s.
07-09-2009 09:04 PM
fourtyoneantz wow i didn't know you could do that..keeping that in mind for when i go to the drive in next
