Yes and no. Here is the official statute:
Transportation Code 545.414. Riding in Open Beds; Offense
(a) A person commits an offense if the person operates an open-bed pickup truck or an open flatbed truck or draws an open flatbed trailer when a child younger than 18 years of age is occupying the bed of the truck or trailer.
(b) An offense under this section is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not less than $25 or more than $200.
(c) It is a defense to prosecution under this section that the person was:
(1) operating or towing the vehicle in a parade or in an emergency;
(2) operating the vehicle to transport farmworkers from one field to another field on a farm-to-market road, ranch-to-market road, or county road outside a municipality;
(3) operating the vehicle on a beach;
(4) operating a vehicle that is the only vehicle owned or operated by members of the household;
(5) or operating the vehicle in a hayride permitted by the governing body of or law enforcement agency of each county or municipality in which the hayride will occur.
(a) Compliance or noncompliance with Subsection (a) is not admissible evidence in a civil trial.
(b) In this section, "household" has the meaning assigned by Section 71.005, Family Code.
It is legal in TX as long as the bed is covered. Never carry anyone in the bed of a truck unless they are properly restrained see
Actually, there are laws restricting riding in the bed of a pickup in AZ. No person under the age of 18 is to be in the bed while the vehicle is in motion. About 20 states have no law regarding riding in the back of a pickup truck, making it legal by default, and about 30 states have some form of restriction or law. Some states only allow persons 18 years of age or older to ride in the back of a pickup truck. Some states, such as California, it is almost completely illegal, with only a few narrow exceptions to the law. Check local laws before riding in the back of a pickup truck.
No...It is not illegal in Utah to ride in the back of a truck except on the freeway. Seatbelts are not required per Utah law for passengers sitting in areas which are primarily used to carry a load (obviously the bed of a truck is meant to carry a load). This law was to prevent people from riding on improper portions of a vehicle such as, fenders, hoods, etc. There are no age restrictions to ride in the back of a truck. Seatbelt laws only apply to people riding within a passenger compartment of a vehicle. I am a police officer in Utah.
According to this statute I found, it is not always legal: "§ 545.414. RIDING IN OPEN BEDS OFFENSE. (a) A person commits an offense if the person operates an open-bed pickup truck or an open flatbed truck or draws an open flatbed trailer when a child younger than 18 years of age is occupying the bed of the truck or trailer. If under 18 the bed must be covered."
It depends. It is true that passengers riding in a vehicle in the state of Tenn, must be wearing a seat belt, but Tennessee state law provides rules for riding in the bed of a truck. Persons under six years of age are not permitted to ride in the bed of a pickup on any road in Tennessee. Children between six and 11 years old may legally ride in the bed of the truck on city street and county highways. They may not ride in the truck bed on state highways or interstate highways. Persons aged 12 and up my be transported in a truck bed on all highways within the state of Tennessee. Counties and cities have the right to pass ordinances to prohibit transporting children in truck bed on their highways. This information is based on T.C.A. 55-8-189.
