Maine law requires that all passengers use seat belts if the vehicle is equipped with them and appropriate child safety restraints while the vehicle is in motion. Passengers must remain seated until the vehicle comes to a complete stop.
Passengers with a medical seat belt exemption must provide a medical exemption certification when boarding. This exemption must be updated every year by your physician. Child safety seats must be used appropriate to the size/height and weight of the child. ARTS buses are equipped with built-in child seats; however parents are encouraged to use their own due to the limited number of built-ins. Parents are responsible for securing children in safety seats.
