A new law could pinch the wallets of Bakersfield bus riders if they don’t buckle up. California DMV Public Information Officer Artemio Armenta says SB 20, the new law that went into effect July 1st also requires the drivers of the buses to remind riders of the new law. Armenta says not all buses are equipped with safety belts or harnesses yet, but folks who ride those that are need to click it, or get a ticket.
