The vehicles must be registered and must meet 7D standards. (Refer to: M.G.L.c.90. Sec.7D.)

Who is a school pupil?

MA law defines a “school pupil” as any person enrolled in any school, kindergarten through grade twelve, or enrolled for daycare services, or in any program for children with special needs as defined in M.G.L. c.71, Sec.1, or in any organized day or summer camp program or any activity supported by the school.
