Seatbelt Exemption for Delivery Drivers
I have a question regarding the seatbelt exemption sometimes referred to as the `Milkman Exemption.` My understanding is that it applies to drivers who make multiple vehicle stops and exits within a confined area (i.e. one street or a bay or boulevard) as they are not in general traffic and never get going very fast (exemption requires 40kmh or lower).
An example would be the old Milk Delivery Drivers or Garbage Collection Trucks, however it appears that UPS and similar type drivers believe it applies to them, even though they are interacting with regular traffic flow (at least potentially) and would be blocking traffic flow if they actually complied with the 40kmh limit.
Is there case law or a legislative briefing note from when the regulation was enacted that I can take to traffic court?
