Seatbelt stuff: the seat belt obligation to wear

seat belt
ER Classics Desktop 2022

Spring has begun. And the police are also out of hibernation again. If we are ever arrested or so, it is usually just because the officer in question is curious about our classic.

But of course, such an employee always looks professionally. we have already received the first report about the recurring seat belt misunderstandings.

If you print this message and keep the print on board, then it might save you a meaningless conversation and you can simply continue to talk.


Oldtimer seatbelt obligation, year related
year of construction for 1 January 1971: NO seatbelt duty
From 1971: attachment points and belts FOR mandatory, for the extreme left and right passenger.

  1. Hi AMK,

    Are you also not obliged to wear the seat belt if it is in a car from before '71?
    And could I take this out (because it is not original)?
