In the event of a vehicle crash, any occupants riding in the bed unrestrained will be ejected and this greatly increases the likelihood of traumatic injuries and even death.
It should be forbidden completely to ride in the bed of a truck, without properly being restrained, on public roads to take the mystery or confusion out of this very dangerous activity.
You can purchase seating for the bed of your truck at BedRyder.com, these seat are legal and with keep your passengers safe.
We lost our son, Tyler Austin Dreiling on May 21, 2010. He was riding in the bed of his friend’s truck on the way home from school. The tire blew on the truck causing the truck to flip ejecting him from the truck. Tyler who was 15 years old stood at 6'3” and weighed 225lbs. He was a young man with a bright future, who had goals and dreams in life.
There is a loop hole in the seat belt law that needs to be changed, for our safety, for our children’s safety and for everyone's safety.
Just think of the many lives that will be saved if this law is passed. If you have ever lost a loved one, then you know where I am coming from. It takes only one time to make that awful decision to get in the bed of a truck unrestrained. By installing proper seating and restraints in the bed of your truck you can protect your passengers from serious injury or even death.
Please sign this petition so that no other families have to go through the pain of losing a loved one.
