RVing Questions: Motorhome seatbelts?
 Passengers in a towed vehicle?

Reproduced from the Leader-Post

I have two questions. The first is regarding the use of seatbelts in motorhomes. What is the law? Do all occupants need to wear seatbelts at all times, or are only those in the two captains chairs required to wear a seatbelt? The second is question is regarding towed RVs (fifth-wheels and bumper hitches). Are you allowed to have occupants in the RV while it is being towed?

ANSWER:
I will answer your second question first. You are not allowed to have passengers in any towed vehicle or trailer. Fifth-wheels and RV trailers are both separate units towed by another vehicle, therefore, it is not legal for a passenger to ride in them. The back of a motorhome is not a towed unit therefore it is legal to ride in the back. Regarding the use of seatbelts in a motorhome, only the driver and passenger are required to use seatbelts unless seatbelts are supplied at the back from the manufacturer, then they must be used. It is illegal to remove seatbelts in any vehicle for the purpose of avoiding their use.

Members of the political class have been attempting to tame the press for decades. (The Spectator came out against such interference back in 1834.) Yet only now, when many of the public prints lie on their deathbed, do politicians have a reasonable chance of success. The pressure group Hacked Off is desperate to establish political control, and it sees its chance. It has, in Mr Miliband, someone keen to play David to the Goliaths of Fleet Street. As one Cabinet member puts it: &ldquo;Miliband may very well push through the full Leveson regulation with Liberal Democrat support. There is a majority in Parliament for it.&rdquo; Technically, it&rsquo;s quite possible: he can insert a clause into a Bill. But first, he needs enough fuss to be kicked up. See RoTi item

So there was a fear that this would result in violence. So the tactic of a mass demonstration was controversial at the time, but also its demands were controversial. They were calling for very strong federal enforcement of equal access to voting rights [and] for desegregation of restaurants and public transportation. They were calling for laws prohibiting private employers and unions from discriminating against people on the basis of race. They were also calling for really significant increases in the minimum wage [and] federal job creation programs, all of which were seen as controversial policies. I think even now they remain controversial. See RoTi item
