From this Friday, all passengers in motor vehicles in Guam will be required to wear seat belts.

In addtion, all children below the age of 12 will be required to use booster seats or car seats.

The Pacific Daily news says the Guam Legislature passed the relevant Public Law in June, to bring local seat belt laws up to federal standards.

The previous law, passed in 1986, mandated the use of seat belts only for the driver and the front seat passenger.
