CHAPTER 1. DEFINITIONS
§ 101. Words and phrases.
“Motor vehicle” includes every vehicle, as defined in this section, “Recreational vehicle” includes every motor vehicle used for temporary human living quarters,
§ 4802. Driver requirements; exceptions; sales requirements; working condition of system.
(a)(1) The driver of a motor vehicle operated on a street or highway in this State shall wear a properly adjusted and fastened seat belt which meets the applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards.
(2) The driver of a motor vehicle shall secure or cause to be secured in a properly adjusted and fastened seat belt system, as defined by the applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards, each occupant of the passenger compartment of the motor vehicle who is 16 years of age or older (under 16 years of age is addressed in § 4803. Child restraint in motor vehicles).
It is clear in Delaware Code (§ 101. Words and phrases) that a Recreational Vehicle is classified as a Motor Vehicle. It is also difficult if not impossible to find any reference in Delaware Code as to what is considered the passenger compartment of a Recreational Vehicle.
