Can I drive at night while the children are sleeping?

Can I drive an RV at night while the children are sleeping?The Canadian Highway Code requires all passengers in an RV (or car) to fasten their seat belts while the vehicle is driving.

A violation will earn you a fine of $80 to $100.

The number of passengers inside a vehicle must not exceed the number of seat belts.

It is therefore prohibited by law to allow children to sleep in a bed in the RV while driving at night (or in the day), as they will not be wearing seat belts.

It is also a question of common sense. An accident can happen at any time. Do you really want to run the risk of losing someone you love just because they weren't wearing a seat belt?

Wearing a seat belt is the best protection for all vehicle occupants.
