What are the rules for riding in the back of a pickup?

Have you seen people riding in the back of a pickup and wondered if that's legal? Officer Marcus Trujillo explains the laws.

"We have the state law and then we have the city ordinance. The state law says that no one under the age of 18 can ride in a pickup truck at all. However, the city ordinance says under the age of 14 no one can ride at all, and above the age of 14 it's only for purposes of employment. So if you're just riding from point A to point B, number one - don't put your kids in the bed of the pickup truck unless you have a camper shell or some other properly approved restraint system. That's not really where you want to be transporting your kids anyway."
