Wearing seat belts is the single most effective way to prevent serious injuries and save people from dying in car crashes.
- You can get pulled over solely for not wearing your seat belt.
- By law, both the driver and front seat passenger must wear seat belts at all times
If cited for a seat belt violation, you can expect to pay a fine. But remember, the real cost for not wearing your seat belt could be your life. Buckle up, every trip, every time.
Follow these guidelines to keep them safe:
0-2 years: By law, children under 2 must be properly secured in a rear-facing car seat.
2-4 years: Must be in a car seat until age 4.
4-8 years: Must be in a car seat or child booster seat until at least age 8, unless the child is taller than 4'9".
