Mumbai Police said Friday that wearing seat belts will be compulsory for drivers and co-passengers of four-wheelers in the metropolis from November 1.

The city’s traffic wing of the police, in a statement, asked all motorists and vehicle owners to install a seat belt device in four-wheeled vehicles before November 1 and put in guard against offenders.

After Nov. 1, all motor vehicle drivers and passengers traveling on four-wheelers on Mumbai’s roads will be required to wear seat belts, an official said. Strict action will be taken against offenders under Section 194(B)(1) of the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, he said.

In accordance with the provisions of the law, anyone who drives a motor vehicle without wearing seat belts or carries passengers who do not wear seat belts is punished.

Former Tata Sons chairman Cyrus Mistry was killed in a road accident in nearby Palghar district last month and an investigation into the accident found the businessman, who was in the back seat of the Mercedes car, was not wearing a seat belt.

The car was traveling at high speed and Mistry died from the impact of the accident after his vehicle hit the bulkhead of a bridge over the Surya River in the nearby district.
