Japan's transport ministry has decided to mandate seatbelts and other safety features on go-karts that run on public roads.

Go-kart tours are popular mostly among foreign tourists to Japan. But they're dangerous because drivers don't need to wear seatbelts.

The transport ministry says go-karts were involved in 3 accidents in fiscal 2016.
