(A) Every operator and front seat passenger of a passenger car operated in the corporate city limits shall wear a properly adjusted and fastened safety seat belt system, required to be installed in the motor vehicle when manufactured pursuant to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 208. For the purposes of this section, “passenger car” shall mean “vehicle,” as defined in 47 O.S. § 1102, except that “passenger car” shall not include trucks, truck-tractors, recreational vehicles, motorcycles, motorized bicycles or vehicles used primarily for farm use and licenses pursuant to the provisions of 47 O.S. § 1134.
(B) This section shall not apply to an operator or passenger of a passenger car in which the operator or passenger possesses a written verification from a physician licensed in the state that the individual is unable to wear a safety belt system for medical reasons. The issuance of the verification by a physician, in good faith, shall not give rise to, nor shall the physician thereby incur any liability whatsoever in damages or otherwise, to any person injured by reason of the failure to wear a safety seat belt system.
