Seatbelt use becomes mandatory

The law, effective June 9, 2009, requires everyone in a passenger vehicle to wear a seatbelt, and extends the seatbelt law to drivers and passengers of commercial motor vehicles, type III school buses and type III Head Start buses.

A $25 fine is to be assessed to the driver for failure to wear a seatbelt, and the driver is subject to a $25 fine per violation for each unbuckled passenger under age 15.  Passengers age 15 and above are subject to their own fine.  A violation will not appear on the person's driving record.
