Hi Ray,
I found this article which says 1967.

Seat Belt Course

[FONT=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Next a little potted history of seatbelt law. They were an invention by Volvo, who patented it but were so convinced of its life-saving benefit that they let other manufacturers use it free of charge. In which year was the compulsory fitting of seat belts introduced? 1967. When did it become compulsory to wear a front seat belt, where fitted? 1983. In which year did it become mandatory for children under 14 to wear a seat belt in the rear of a car? 1989. When was the law extended to include adults in the back seat? 1991.[/FONT]

However, having been the victim of an RTA and being hospitalised for several months, while being in the passenger seat in a vehicle not fitted with seatbelts, I'd never travel without one on again.

Steve.
